Fine music and splendid natural surroundings combine to provide an unforgettable experience in Enontekiö and the North Calotte region. With concerts held in wilderness huts or churches, these performances are always truly intimate occasions for the audience. The events of this northernmost celebration of sacred and classical music in the European Union are mainly arranged during Easter week, but we also enrich the cultural life of the region with concerts at other times of year. Hetta Music Event will celebrate its golden jubilee season in 2019.
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 Old Town in Rauma provides unique concert venues for this August celebration. Our programme of chamber music is a refreshing combination of familiar classics and lesser-known gems reflecting an annually changing theme.
