Held at the beginning of June, this high standard chamber music event delights the public with leading Finnish and international musicians and the stars of the future appearing as soloists and in ensembles of all sizes. The music reaches every corner of the town, providing memorable experiences for listeners of all ages. Admission to about half of the concerts is free of charge.
The finest mediaeval, renaissance and baroque compositions resound through the venerable cultural landscapes of Lake Rautavesi every year at the turn of July and August, with the mediaeval stone churches and leading cultural sites of Sastamala serving as charming concert venues. Our thematic five-year programme for 2018 – 2023 will transport audiences to a series of cities served by waterways that have linked them to the wider world and turned them into flourishing centres of culture. The theme city in 2019 will be Paris, the city of love.
Leading artists have been providing unique experiences for our audiences in the splendid cultural landscapes of Southwest Finland since 1999, with programmes ranging from familiar classics to the very latest chamber music performed in intimate manor houses and churches.
The maritime ambience of Inkoo and its mediaeval church will breathe new life into familiar and less well-known works of chamber music. The highlights of this annual celebration are international guest stars, a concert for children, a concert at the Wallhalla Theatre in Barösund, and the Jazz in the Square free concert. The Artistic Director of Music by the Sea is the violinist Nonna Knuuttila.
