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.
This unique celebration gives the audience an intimate chamber music experience by the historic shores of Lake Tuusula with an unconventional, multi-artistic and intellectually riveting programme. Our Festival keeps listeners on their toes by continually re-inventing and challenging itself under the inspired artistic direction of the Kamus Quartet.
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.
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. The festival theme in 2019 will be Sic Vita!
