- The Sibelius Academy is one of the largest music universities in Europe. It is also the organizer of the most frequent concerts in Helsinki, with nearly daily performances ranging through classical, opera, church, folk, jazz and contemporary music. Their concert program, not unnaturally, places emphasis on chamber music. Recitals are held by some of the best students and teachers of the Academy, as well as well-known foreign artists. The main venue is the Academy itself, just around the corner from the Parliament building. The Academy contains several concert halls, one for organ recitals, another for chamber music performances and a large hall seating 700 for bigger events. Some concerts are organised elsewhere, at appropriate locations around the city. Tickets can be bought at the box office an hour before the concert, or in advance from Lippupalvelu. Many concerts are free.
