Master conductor Valeri Gergijev will once again bring the world famous St. Petersburg Mariinski Theatre Orchestra and soloists to Mikkeli next summer. Initially organised as an intimate chamber music celebration in 1992, our festival has grown into one of the leading classical music events of the Finnish cultural summer.
This unique event provides an opportunity to hear new and early chamber music at atmospheric concert venues set amidst the splendid scenery of the Ostrobothnian coast. The accomplished Swedish violinist Cecilia Zilliacus has served as our Artistic Director since 2018.
This splendid festival focuses on song music performed at local venues, together with courses for singers and musicians, and the Kangasniemi singing competition. The Artistic Director of the festival is the distinguished conductor Mikko Franck.
