The Rotterdam Sibelius Festival, at which the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra is conducted by Jukka-Pekka Saraste, will continue with four more concerts in November/December 2019 at De Doelen in Rotterdam. Also performing will be the star violinist Baiba Skride and Finland’s world-famous YL Male Voice Choir under Pasi Hyökki.
