Harpist Emmanuel Ceysson is one of the six international professionals invited to the Sibelius Academy as Visiting Professors within the International Visitor Programme. Ceysson currently works as the Principal Harp of the MET Opera Orchestra, leaving the Harpist chair of the Opéra National, that he had won aged 22. As a teacher, he has worked in several internationally renowed institutions such as the Royal Academy of Music in London and the Mannes School of Music in New York. In his career, Ceysson has also won several international competitions.

On the last day of the course Ceysson will organize a ”mock audition” with feedback session for the Sibelius Academy students.

The International Visitor Programme, organized for the first time in 2019, complements the regular bachelor’s and master’s studies offered by Uniarts Helsinki’s Sibelius Academy by inviting artists who represent the highest talent level of their respective fields to come and teach in Finland. For the year 2020, six top professionals in their fields have been invited to the Sibelius Academy as visiting professors. The programme has received financial support from the Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation and Jenny and Antti Wihuri Foundation.
