Varkaus SummerClassical combines together the beautiful nature of Varkaus, urban milieu, interesting concert venues, great artists and wonderful program! These aspects create the special atmosphere that has delighted visitors since 2017. During previous years the festival has included first performances and also leading artists, such as cellist Raphael Wallfisch, have appeared in addition to young musicians. During last three years the festival has gained popularity and has also had media attention. In 2019 the festival was visited by almost 900 visitors during a five day period.
A wide repertoire ofsolo pieces and chamber music has been perfomed and in 2018 SummerClassical had an honor to give the Finnish Premiere of M. Weinberg Concertino for cello and orchestra.
SummerClassical is a relaxed and open-minded event where listeners can be touched by music, hear artists breaking musical borders and experience unforgettable moments and skilful performances.
