An intimate, youthful celebration in the childhood stamping ground of Finland’s national composer Jean Sibelius, with concerts in various districts of Loviisa, just an hour’s drive from Helsinki to the East. With short distances between performance venues, a warm concert mood is guaranteed to pervade these idyllic surroundings.
A week of top-class concerts with leading Finnish and international performing artists at several concert venues in unique and scenic surroundings. Our chamber music entertains audiences at churches, chapels, village halls and other interesting venues in the district, with larger symphony orchestras also visiting in interim years. Artistic Director Anna Aminoff was also a founder of this festival in 2006.
Held in the south-easternmost corner of Finland, this festival transports its audiences on a tour of villages, varying landscapes and diverse moods with a programme of the finest chamber music from various eras and master classes for young musicians. Some special events such as meetings with artists and impromptu performances in public spaces will also be open to all comers.
This internationally acclaimed festival will bring together friends of Sibelius’ music from across the globe September 2021, as the Lahti Symphony Orchestra once again invites followers of Finland’s national composer to a wonderful celebration in the acoustically splendid setting of Sibelius Hall. The Artistic Director of the festival is the distinguished Chief Conductor of the Lahti Symphony Orchestra, Dalia Stasevska.
