"Soundig flavors, tasty tones"

Surrender to all the senses

What if you could order live performance delights from the menu with your table companions, just like a restaurant dinner?  How does Elisabeth's cake sound? Is Brahms's music as heavy as his plate? Do you want to experience cultural experiences for the whole family? When visiting the market or the beach, can you stop for a moment by live classical music, and how about listening in the library when the works of art start playing or the short stories of a author bubble in the swirls of music?

Nurmes Summer Music offers an experiential week in the beauty of North Karelian summer.

Spend the most delicious week of the summer with us!


The pair of artistic directors of summer music are pianists Tuija Hakkila and Anna Laakso on alternate years.  Anna is responsible for the plans for summer 2023.

Every year, Nurme's summer is filled with captivating energy as dozens of young music students rush to learn craftsmanship and knowledge from the Summer Academy's master classes.

What would be a more delicious opportunity than peeking behind the scenes and watching how the road to becoming an artist is built.
