Because of the Corona pandemic, Korsholm Music Festival and the Master Classes are cancelled. This summer, we will only stream concerts from Vaasa City Hall on our homepage and in social media. The Master Classes will be moved to next year 2021. The festival will be held next year 28.7.-4.8. as well as the Master Classes.
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.
The goal of Korsholm Music Festival is to bring chamber music to the people in the region, but also to bring skills to students of music on a professional level. There has been a pause in master classes during the years of Korsholm Music Festival, but from year 2013 the tradition is re-established.
This year master classes are held in violin with Cecilia Zilliacus and Jannika Gustafsson, in song with Mari Palo, in double bass with Rick Stotijn and in clarinet with Lars Wouters van den Oudenweijer. A master class concert will be held on Monday 3.8, where the master class students have the possibility to perform.
