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.
Invigorating chamber music, philosophical debate and intellectual enquiry come together at this fascinating festival, with memorable performances in an idyllic garden city milieu just a short drive from Helsinki.
The programmed events of this warm celebration tastefully combine a wide range of musical experiences in various genres that draw strength from unique concert venues in the rural milieu of Harjavalta and Kokemäki. Pride of place goes to chamber and wind instrument music, complemented by high standard light music and children’s concerts.
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.
