Summer Sounds will offer unique and broad-minded concert experiences from various eras to audiences of all ages. The Avanti! Chamber Orchestra will be joined by leading soloists and worldclass conductors.
The unique historical milieu of the old parish church of St Lawrence provides the heart of this superb musical experience, which gives pride of place to baroque music and period instruments while also accommodating musical works from other eras. Leading artists will place special emphasis on works not previously heard in Finland.
An intimate, youthful celebration in the childhood stamping ground of Finland’s national composer Jean Sibelius, with concerts in various districts of Loviisa, just an hour’s drive from Helsinki to the East. With short distances between performance venues, a warm concert mood is guaranteed to pervade these idyllic surroundings.
Master conductor Valeri Gergijev will once again bring the world famous St. Petersburg Mariinski Theatre Orchestra and soloists to Mikkeli next summer. Initially organised as an intimate chamber music celebration in 1992, our festival has grown into one of the leading classical music events of the Finnish cultural summer.
