Leading artists have been providing unique experiences for our audiences in the splendid cultural landscapes of Southwest Finland since 1999, with programmes ranging from familiar classics to the very latest chamber music performed in intimate manor houses and churches.
This city festival will provide music for a wide variety of tastes in splendid concert halls and archipelago venues under the capable guidance of Artistic Director Klaus Mäkelä. The programme will include major orchestral concerts, chamber music, opera, recitals, jazz, world music and concerts for the whole family. Performers will be leading Finnish and international artists.
This unique celebration gives the audience an intimate chamber music experience by the historic shores of Lake Tuusula with an unconventional, multi-artistic and intellectually riveting programme. Our Festival keeps listeners on their toes by continually re-inventing and challenging itself under the inspired artistic direction of the Kamus Quartet.
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.
