Enjoy live music from Sibelius Academy students during summer afternoons at Musiikkitalo!
V.S.B was a project that came about very naturally. Since immigrating last year, I have had the pleasure of encountering some of the most adroit musicians in Finland. Okko and Maxxx were possibly some of the very first people I met in Helsinki. Since the beginning we have shared a special bond ideal for a musical relationship. Samuel was one that I have met relatively recently though we discovered almost immediately that we share a love for the same type of Jazz music. Never before have these musicians joined forces until today thus the band is called 'very special band'. We sincerely hope you enjoy!

Sibelius Academy students play pop up -concerts all through the summer at Musiikkitalo. Music on offer will range from classical to jazz. Most of the concerts are held in our cafe, so you can enjoy a fresh drink and maybe some delicacies while enjoying the music.

All the pop up -concerts are free of charge – welcome!
