Welcome to participate in Master Classes!
The Master Classes will continue in the summer 2022. This summer the festival is held between 27.7.–4.8. and the Master Classes will be held during the same time. This year the Master Classes are also open for spectators.
The Master Classes are primarily intended for people studying at conservatories or institutes of higher education, who are aiming to become professional musicians. Other people are also welcome to apply and take part in masterclasses if space remains.
Since the early years, there has been a tradition of arranging master classes during the festival. Many of the musicians are professors in their own genre and are giving master classes around the world.
This year master classes will be held in violin by Dmitry Sitkovetsky and Cecilia Zilliacus, in viola by Vicki Powell, in cello by Marko Ylönen, Frans Helmerson and Kati Raitinen, in piano by Henri Sigfridsson, in clarinet by Robert Ek, in flute by Sara Hammarström, and in horn by Tero Toivonen. The Master Class Concert will be held on 31.7.2022, where the students have an opportunity to perform.
