Leading chamber musicians will transfix the town of Kuhmo in Eastern Finland this July. A skilfully designed festival programme, inimitable concerts, beautiful surroundings and sunlit nights will open the senses to new and sublime delights.
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 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.
Intimate manor houses and fabulous churches are the heart of this festival, which benefits greatly from the distinctive performance venues of the region. Our versatile programme brings festival events to five districts in the heart of Savonia, with chamber music gems, special events for children and light music concerts.
