The 51st Kuhmo Chamber Music courses 11–24.7.
The story behind 50 years of the music courses at Kuhmo is a striking one. Over the years untold numbers of the students on these courses have become professionally successful musicians and teachers. And many of them will be performing and teaching at Kuhmo this year too. But the music courses do not just benefit ambitious professional teachers. Younger music enthusiasts will also have much to learn and will gain experience. The concerts and music lessons at Kuhmo and the famous spirit of Kuhmo' affect everyone alive to the unifying power of music.
This summer of 2021, one that will be so different from previous summers, we will be doing everything possible to make sure that the courses and the Festival are safe. As a result, the courses have been shortened slightly and graded in such a way that participant numbers are smaller than usual. There will also be a lot more personal space in the accommodation facilities. There will be plenty of two-bedded rooms available and we will try to accommodate small groups of course participants in class rooms in accordance with your wishes.
The courses will be mainly run in two sessions, one in the first week and the other in the second. When applying, please be specific about which week you would prefer. As things are going to be slightly different this summer, you should also keep a close eye on the course information announcements that will be made.
After what has felt like ages, on behalf of the artists and the rest of the staff here, we would like to welcome you warmly to the Kuhmo music courses this summer of 2021. Let us together make this summer in Kuhmo unforgettable!
