We shall celebrate our golden jubilee season in summer 2022 with numerous opportunities to hear Finnish and international organists, orchestras and choirs. The organ serves as an instrument of several musical genres over the festival week, which also incorporates films, opera, dance and various experimental art forms into the organ music programme.
This new classical music festival is held amidst the Arctic fells of Lapland in Luosto, Pyhä and Sodankylä. Concert venues include unique natural auditoria on the slopes of Ukko-Luosto and in Aittakuru, and the atmospheric old log church of Sodankylä. A versatile serving of chamber, solo and orchestral music from the Middle Ages to the present day will support our 2022 theme of myths and fairy tales.
This unique festival of evening concerts delivers a broad range of classical music events on Thursday evenings throughout the summer in the mediaeval stone church of Espoo. A historic milieu along the Espoonjoki River and late summer evenings foster a splendid ambience for high standard concerts featuring leading Finnish and international artists. The opera singer Tuomas Katajala is serving as Artistic Director of the festival in 2022.
Fine music and splendid natural surroundings combine to provide an unforgettable experience in Enontekiö and the North Calotte region. With concerts held in wilderness huts or churches, these performances are always truly intimate occasions for the audience. The events of this northernmost celebration of sacred and classical music in the European Union are mainly arranged during Easter week, but we also enrich the cultural life of the region with concerts at other times of year.
