Helsinki Music Centre Foundation’s fundraising for 2014 was concluded in a celebratory fashion with a grand concert. Helsingin Musiikkitalo Oy donated the 29 November 2014 concert proceeds to the Helsinki Music Centre Foundation. The concert included performances accompanied by the Centre’s gala orchestra from Diandra and tenor Jyrki Anttila, among others. The total donation was approximately 5000 euros.
The mission of the Helsinki Music Centre Foundation is to promote and treasure different forms of music through performances, mainly at the Helsinki Music Centre. The Foundation awards grants and scholarships for events and acquisitions that promote its mission. The Foundation is a non-profit organisation.
Ritva Viljanen, Deputy Mayor of the City of Helsinki, is the chair of the Foundation; culture coordinator Reetta Sariola is its chief executive.
