Organ Night and Aria Festival delivers a broad range of classical music events on Thursday evenings throughout the summer in the mediaeval stone church of Espoo. A historic milieu along the Espoonjoki River and late summer evenings foster a splendid ambience for high standard concerts featuring leading Finnish and international artists. The opera singer Tuomas Katajala is serving as Artistic Director of the festival.
“We want to offer you intimate lied concerts, guest orchestras, choirs and top international artists at our summer concerts in the medieval setting of Espoo Cathedral. I hope our concerts will provide you with comfort, strength and moments of inspiration. Without interaction with the audience, the art would not be so meaningful for us all.” – Tuomas Katajala, Artistic director
The next edition of Organ Night & Aria Festival will be held summer 2023. The program will be announced later.
