The post of festival director for the Korsholm Music Festival was made vacant earlier this spring due to the departure of current director Monica Johnson in October. Johnson has been the festival director of Korsholm Music Festival for 14 years.

Virta has extensive and diverse experience in the cultural sector and especially in music. She currently works as the general manager of the Seinäjoki City Orchestra. Virta starts as festival director for the Korsholm Music Festival on the 1st of October 2022.
