Southwest Tavastian Music Days, Forssa
16 June 2023 – 8 July 2023
Now celebrated in Forssa and surrounding districts for the 42nd time, this splendid event provides a wealth of concerts every day. Quality is guaranteed with such artists as our resident ensemble the Quartetto di Cremona, which is scheduled to give three concerts including the premiere of a specially commissioned 4th String Quartet by Kalevi Aho. Kharkiv Opera Theatre and Symphony Orchestra and the Conscript Band of the Finnish Defence Forces will reinvigorate the Musica Kalevi Aho Festival, a co-production with our affiliated organisation of the same name. The fine old ironworks milieu of Nuutajärvi Glass Village in Urjala will serve as one of our more memorable venues. Festival audiences and artists are also sure to be inspired by other familiar and much-loved settings, such as Jokioinen Manor and Saari Public Park in Tammela.
