Since 1916, the Sibelius Academy Symphony Orchestra has been the backbone of the education of Finnish orchestral musicians. In spectacular productions, the Academy’s young conductors and soloists also get the opportunity to showcase their skills. Sakari Oramo, Professor of Orchestra Education, is responsible for the educational content of the orchestra. The orchestra’s home concert hall is the Helsinki Music Centre concert hall and it regularly visits other halls both in Finland and abroad.
