Kainuu Music Festivals

Can you hear the call of Kuhmo chamber music festival or Sommelo? Or do you long for some pop or rock sounds?  Several kinds of music festivals take annually place in Kainuu.

Chamber Music in a Unique Atmosphere

For two frenetic weeks in July, Kuhmo is host to a chamber music festival attracting thousands of music lovers. In that fortnight, this town of 8,000 inhabitants echoes to the sound of music against a backcloth of a lake that almost laps the walls of the concert halls in the clear, unbelievable northern light.
