Global Fest: Venhe

VENHE brings on stage the passion and skill of seven global musicians

Covid pass is required in all concerts

Based on the order issued by the Regional State Administrative Agency of Southern Finland on 2 December 2021, covid pass is required for all events at the Sibelius Academy. Covid passes are checked from the entire audience at all our public events that hold more than 20 people. The restriction applies to our Helsinki locations. If you do not have a covid pass, you are entitled to a refund of your ticket. Ticketmaster is in contact with customers.

The transcultural ensemble work consists of composing and co-creating new music where the various musical influences and backgrounds of the students come together, blending, interacting and creating a sound unique to the group. Not forgetting to pay respect to the traditions and cultures the inspiration is drawn from. The concert includes an original composition from each of the students as well as some own arrangements of existing material.
