Summer concerts

30th June-8th July

”Without music life would be a mistake” 

Friedrich Nietzsche was right. If you want to have food for your soul Nurmes is place to be!

Welcome to spend a week in the heart of music, inside and between notes, in the magic of nights without darkness and the euphoria of music! Have a look at the artists, the master class teachers and the courses of summer 2018.

See what's new! This summer we will give the first-ever kantele master class and there will be a cembalo course! Violinists Minna Pensola and Antti Tikkanen of the Meta4 quartet will give master class for chamber music ensembles.

We welcome you warmly, and see you in Nurmes!
