Powerful experiences, brilliant Finnish and international 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 festival will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2018.
Invigorating chamber music, philosophical debate and academic enquiry will come together at this fascinating festival amidst the autumnal ambience of an idyllic garden city within the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, with a wide range of workshops and some unprecedented surprises.
The main programme of Oulainen Music Week is a classical music concert series, which is supplemented by supporting events with leading names in jazz, folk, children’s music and entertainment.
This annual specialised event provides numerous opportunities to hear Finnish and international organists, orchestras and choirs, with the organ serving as an instrument of several musical genres over the festival week. Since its very inception in 1973 Lahti Organ Festival has also featured films, circus, dance and various experimental art forms in the organ music programme.
