The SIBELIUS ACADEMY
The Sibelius Academy is part of the University of the Arts, together with the Academy of Fine Arts and the Theatre Academy in Helsinki, Finland. The jazz department in Sibelius Academy offers the highest jazz education in Finland. With our around 40 students the department is a small and very high-level community of young like-minded jazz talents. In addition to studies, we organize concerts, have our yearly festival DIG., and work closely in cooperation with other jazz organizations in Finland. The “Sibis Jazz” is also an active part of the International Association of Schools of Jazz (IASJ). In the fall 2023, we will celebrate the 40th anniversary of jazz tuition at Sibelius Academy. We are so happy and honoured to be part of this collaboration along with the two other prestigious institutions.
Join us in these casual jazz encounters where three schools collide and learn from each other. Audience participation is encouraged! Ask your questions in the chat during the live session.
On March 18, the three 30-minute concerts will be featured as a 90-minute concert, presented by the NAC and live streamed from our website and on Facebook.
