This unique series of late evening concerts complements the mediaeval stonewalled ambience of Espoo Cathedral with a versatile, high standard programme throughout the summer. Leading artists of vocal, organ, chamber and orchestral music provide memorable experiences on intimate summer evenings. The Artistic Director of Organ Night and Aria is the distinguished pianist Erkki Korhonen.
A week of top class concerts with leading Finnish and international performing artists at several concert venues in unique and scenic surroundings. Our chamber music entertains audiences at churches, chapels, village halls and other interesting venues in the district, with larger symphony orchestras also visiting in interim years. Artistic Director Anna Aminoff was also a founder of this festival in 2006.
The maritime ambience of Inkoo and its mediaeval church will breathe new life into familiar and less well-known works of chamber music. The highlights of this annual celebration are international guest stars, a concert for children, a concert at the Wallhalla Theatre in Barösund, and the Jazz in the Square free concert. The Artistic Director of Music by the Sea is the violinist Nonna Knuuttila.
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.
