Sibelius Festival 2020
Sibelius One organizes a group visit to the Lahti Sibelius Festival each year. As part of our party you get hotel recommendations, discount on the concert tickets and the opportunity to participate in our group visit to Sibelius’s home, Ainola, as well as numerous informal social occasions with our very friendly and welcoming group.
The Lahti Symphony Orchestra’s 21st International Sibelius Festival will take place at the Sibelius Hall from 15–18 October 2020, and its artistic director is Dima Slobodeniouk, principal conductor of the Lahti Symphony Orchestra. (Important note: the correct date is 15–18 October, not 15–18 November as published in some sources.)
The programme for the 2020 festival is likely to include all seven Sibelius symphonies plus chamber music.
Ticket reservations are made via Sibelius One but no advance payment is required: you just pay for the tickets when you collect them from the Sibelius Hall box office (tickets) or the ticket agency in the town centre. This is a no-cost service but you must be a member of Sibelius One to use it. You may normally change or cancel your booking without charge simply by letting us know – but if you don’t inform us and fail to use seats booked in your name, you may be liable for the costs.
We normally reserve a block of concert tickets in the best available seats in the hall. From these seats you experience the acclaimed acoustics of the Sibelius Hall at their very best. Cheaper seats are also available, but those would be away from the main Sibelius One group.
Group members book their own travel from their home locations to Finland, as everybody’s requirements vary and many people like to spend a few extra days in Finland either before or after the festival. It is strongly recommended that you arrive at least one day before the first concert in case of flight delays.
To ensure we book enough of the best seats, we ask for provisional ticket reservations by the end of December 2019.
