Festival Description

The Sastamala Gregoriana Early Music Festival, which takes place in Sastamala, Finland (near Tampere, north of Helsinki). Sastamala Gregoriana is one of the leading Finnish festivals.  It is based in Sastamala Old Church, an historically important building, which is a beautiful and spiritually uplifting environment, and an acoustic space with unique qualities which are perfectly suited to “early music”. It is the only festival in Finland which combines the traditional lakeside, rural location so popular in festivals, with a top-quality, international roster of artists.

Practical Info:

Venue:
  • Sastamala Old Church is a gem of a venue for the performance of music that is contemporary with its history. Its vaulted wooden ceiling, rough hewn stone walls, dirt floor and quiet location combine to make it one of the finest acoustical environments in the world for solo vocal music and small ensembles. Its peaceful, natural environment gives it a further special character, and the surrounding silence deepens the peace and beauty of the musical experience for performers and audiences.
