CHAMBER MUSIC and WARM, LIGHT NIGHTS 2014, 30st of July 6th of AUGUST
The coastline and the archipelago of Vaasa and Korsholm are among the most beautiful areas in the Nordic area. Since 1983 the Korsholm Music Festival has invited leading Nordic and international artists to perform during these wonderful summer weeks with music ranging from baroque compositions to classical chamber works and new music.
The festival, that is one of the most acknowledged chamber music festivals in Finland, brings its own mood to this coastal region as music resounds in concert halls, restaurants, museums and idyllic church buildings. Our famous "daylight" during the nights brings a special magic to the festival atmosphere!
In Year 2014 the Korsholm Music Festival will be arranged from 30.7. - 6.8. The top-performing artists consist of skilled Finnish musicians together with foreign guests.
