The landscapes of Lake Tuusula form the crucible of the Finnish cultural world, providing the backdrop for a unique journey through the wonders of living chamber music. Artistic Director Pekka Kuusisto is expecting several leading musicians to take up his invitation to perform at the festival, as in previous years. We cannot guarantee that everything you hear will be safe and familiar, but open-minded audiences can rest assured of satisfaction.
A week of top class concerts with international performing artists at several concert venues in unique surroundings. Our chamber music will enthral audiences at the churches and chapels of the district, and will also entertain people on a cruise ship, in village halls and manor houses, and in an old stable building. Larger symphony orchestras are also guests of the festival in interim years. Artistic Director Anna Aminoff was also a founder of this festival in 2006.
Powerful experiences, brilliant Finnish and international artists, a splendid setting and a continually evolving topical perspective on the diverse world of church music! Besides more traditional music events, Lohtaja Church Music Festival will provide pop-up concerts, community singing and other social occasions. This festival will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2018.
