We follow the authoritative information concerning the exceptional situation caused by the corona virus. We are now able to arrange the camp in a smaller scale and in this way pay careful attention to the safety of all the participants.

National summer camp for baroque music and baroque art. The artistic director, violinist Kreeta-Maria Kentala has designed the camp together with an artistic working group. In addition to baroque music lessons, there will be several concerts and both art and music lectures open for all interested. This is the second baroque summer camp held in our region, a dream come true for all the baroque lovers far and near. The goal is to share qualified baroque teaching to a wider group of musicians and to offer high-class master classes to baroque instrumentalists. Also, students can observe all teaching during the camp. This year, there will be teaching in baroque violin, baroque cello, baroque song, recorder and flute. You can join the camp with a baroque instrument or with a modern instruments. Continuo teaching is a perfect match for example for all the organists who want to expand their continuo skills with cembalo and/or organ.
