Introduction

Helsinki Chamber Music Festival

The Helsinki Chamber Music Festival will be organised for the third time in the historical centre of Helsinki July 3rd-6th 2019.

The festival offers high quality concert experiences at central locations surrounding the Senate Square and historical Helsinki. The neighbourhood's architecturally unique art nouveau style halls, recently renovated cafés and beautiful churches provide an idyllic settings for many characterful concerts.

Traditionally, summertime chamber music festivals have taken place in the countryside, but we want to make sure urban music lovers will get their share of classical music as well. One of our goals is to create concerts that facilitate interaction and communication between the artists and the concertgoers. Every year the festival invites internationally renowned foreign artists to come and perform with front line musicians from Finland in a relaxed, inspiring atmosphere.

This year's programme ranges from baroque to 21st century music. A concert is dedicated to both British and Nordic music and as a novelty we have a children's concert. New venues include the Helsinki Cathedral and Ballroom G18.

A warm Welcome to our Festival
in the summer of 2019!
