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.
Finnish and international artists will bring memorable chamber music experiences to the Finnish capital, delighting all friends of urban summer events at a wide variety of venues in the historic surroundings and downtown districts of the city, and focusing particularly on its unique art nouveau concert halls. A fascinating programme, audience-friendliness and reasonable ticket prices are integral aspects of this annual event.
Powerful experiences, brilliant 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 chamber music event centres on the 300-year-old wooden cruciform church in the village of Iitti, about 70 miles northeast of Helsinki. The high point of the festivities will be hauling a piano to the lookout point at Hiidenvuori for a watchnight concert. The pianist Laura Mikkola has served as Artistic Director of the festival from its very foundation.
