Preparations for the Sounds of Luosto! 2021 festival underway
The four day classical music festival will offer a program covering over 900 years of music history. The program includes works from 27 composers.
The festival features a blend of rarely heard works and famous classics. Among the composers featured are notable Finnish talents Kaija Saariaho, Minna Leinonen, Kalevi Aho, and Jean Sibelius.
“As of now we are quite confident that it will be possible to organize cultural events in Finland during the late summer of 2021. Specifically open-air concerts are a fantastic opportunity to bring large audiences together and feed the hunger for the arts that has only grown over the last year” says artistic director Aku Sorensen.
In addition to performances, the festival will host a number of free-admission talks and activities.
The festival will follow all necessary COVID-19 government guidelines in order to ensure the safety of attendees, staff, and artists.
Ticket sales for the 2021 festival will begin in March. It is possible to use all non-returned tickets for the 2020 festival for 2021, and no action is necessary on behalf of the customer.
