School and daycare groups are welcome to attend rehearsals on concert days to see what goes on in an orchestra’s daily work.

We send out materials to schools and daycare centres to help prepare for the visit. Admission to the public final rehearsals is free and include a brief introductory talk at the Concert Hall 30 minutes before the rehearsal begins. The talks begin at 10.30, and the rehearsal ends at about 12.00.

If you wish to book a visit for your group, get in touch at least two weeks before the event with Pekka Haapanen, producer.
