Baroque Summer Camp

Baroque Summer Camp in Kälviä, Finland

Date: 2.-8.7.2022

We follow the authoritative information concerning the exceptional situation caused by the corona virus. We will 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 fourth 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, both those who want to get their first touch into baroque music and those who want to deepen their skills with a baroque instrument. Also, students can observe all teaching during the camp.

Baroque summer camp is open for all ages! All you need is to be able to read notes fluently!

You can join the camp with a baroque instrument or with a modern instrument.
Continuo teaching is a perfect match for example for all the organists who want to expand their continuo skills with cembalo and/or organ.

The camp starts on Saturday 2.7. at 20 o’clock and ends on Friday 8.7. with a concert Kaarlela Church in Kokkola. We will arrange transportation to and from Kokkola railway station in connection with one specific train upon arrival and departure. The trains will be announced later.
