NURMES Summer Academy & Summer Concerts
June 30th - July 8th 2018
”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.
Now is the time to reserve your seat in the heart of music!
You will be able to see the concerts programme in March. We will have the most exciting chamber music works. We will also slow down the speed in the concerts in the Orthodox church. We will have surprise music all over Nurmes! The audience will take part in one of the concerts in a novel manner... but more on that a bit later!
Registration period is 15th January - 1st May 2018
