Musiikkitalo will close its doors on Wednesday March 18th and remain closed as long as needed, according to how the situation develops. The closing is due to the Finnish government’s decision on March 16th to close all cultural centres to stem the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Closing Musiikkitalo also means that any services within Musiikkitalo will be unavailable and remain closed with Musiikkitalo.
All concerts at Musiikkitalo are cancelled until May 31st. Some concerts will be held without an audience and will be accessible via web streaming or television broadcasts.
