Baroque Summer Camp

Baroque Summer Camp in Kälviä, Finland

Date: 3rd to 9th July 2021

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 third 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. 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 3rd July at 20 o’clock and ends on Friday 9th July 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.
