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.
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.
A refreshing review of art experiences delivered by great artists in concert halls, churches and even in a steam train, in the forest, or in the intimate ambience of a late evening concert. To accompany the concert series, the Nurmes Summer Academy presents the performances of rising young talents. Audiences may follow teaching and lecture events, and you may even attend a private master class of your own! Pianists Tuija Hakkila and Anna Laakso are responsible for plotting the artistic direction of this event.
