Hortus Musicus concert is cancelled


Andres Mustonen and Hortus Musicus’ concert on July 29, 2023, has been cancelled, as we do not accept collaboration with Russia from our artists in the current world situation. The Korsholm Music Festival has closely followed the development of the situation in Estonia, where Andres Mustonen's concert and festival visits to Russia have come to the fore. The focus has been on Mustonen’s Russian collaborators and their connections with the Kremlin administration.


Those who have already bought tickets to the concert will get their money back and we have contacted them. We regret the situation.

Live concerts & Live streams
