During the 2023 summer our museum comes to life on weekends with live music in the Sibelius Hall. With this, we wish to provide a possibility to experience our exhibitions a bit differently. Naturally, you may also have a seat in the concert hall and just enjoy the music.

Summer Sibelius is a collaborative project between the Sibelius Museum and the Turku Arts Academy where music students perform music by Jean Sibelius during short pop-up concerts.

The Summer Sibelius concerts are included in the admission price.

On the second weekend in August we will hear violinist Emilia Sohlberg and pianist Niilo Autio.

NB! On the 13th August, the concert begins at 12.00
