Come and enjoy 11 - 14 July 2024!

The unforgettable Heinävesi Music Festival concerts on 11 - 14th July 2024!

The Heinävesi Music Festival celebrates again the Power of Light of the nightless nights and the unique Nature of North Carelia with great works of orchestral and chamber music.

We are happy welcome Helsinki Sinfonietta back to the festival with two concerts in July. The orchestra will be led by two great maestros Atso Almila and Erkki Lasonpalo. We are also looking forward to Dominante Choir and the excellent soloists joining us in Haydn’s Nelson Mass — Missa in Angustiis in the concluding concert of the festival on July 14th.

The symphonic concerts form the foundation of the festival programme but The Heinävesi Music Festival traditionally has a strong focus on Lied and Chamber Music. Our chamber music concerts in Heinävesi Church, Heinävesi Parish Hall and in the Valamo monastery and Säynämö Chapel offer a more intimate setting for reflecting the thematics of the unique Nature.

The festival summer 2024 will be an exceptional experience. Since the fantastic Heinävesi Church is being renovated during the summer months, our orchestral concerts on July 12 and 14 will take place in another magnificent church, the Leppävirta Cathedral designed by Carl Ludwig Engel.

The concept of the Heinävesi Music Festival brings generations together. Genius and experience meet with passion and young talent in Heinävesi!

The adventurous mind will find much to explore in Heinävesi during the festival. Heinävesi also offers cruises through the wonderful lake scenery of Saimaa, along Finland’s most beautiful, narrow water route ”Heinäveden reitti”.

You are most welcome to join us and enjoy the music and the unique — one could say Sibelian — scenery of Heinävesi!
