Jyväskylä Sinfonia, Jyväskylä’s symphony orchestra, is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser from year to year. Now the institution is embarking on an ambitious quest for new audiences to join the old, a new dwelling, and even a new sound. The world-famous acoustician Eckhard Kahle has been invited to be part of the design team for the orchestra’s new concert hall. Kahle visited Jyväskylä on September 15 and 16, and got to know the orchestra’s work and the available space at Jyväskylä Paviljonki.
Jyväskylä Sinfonia is preparing to move to the Jyväskylä Paviljonki fair and event centre in 2023.
Since the beginning of the 21th century, Jyväskylä Sinfonia has filled its concert halls year after year and the seats are almost 100 % sold. Orchestra’s chief conductor Ville Matvejeff began his period in the beginning of 2014 and will continue until the year 2022. Matvejeff is one of the most interesting Finnish musical talents. Successful as a composer, conductor, pianist, and singer, he has established himself as an exceptionally wide-ranging musician.
