Korsholm – Umeå Summit

In August we resume the cooperation with the Korsholm Music Festival by setting up a two-day mini festival with ties to the River Stories project.

During the 90’s and early 2000 Umeå had a vibrant collaboration and exchange with Korsholm in Finland. Deteriorating communications put this on hold for several years but thanks to the Capital of Culture year the collaboration has awakened once again.

Some of the most foremost artists at the Music Festival visits Umeå, led by artistic director Henri Sigfridsson. You will hear distinguished chamber music by the likes of Grieg, Sibelius, Ravel and Fagerlund. From Umeå’s side Korsholm is offered the River Stories-production River Eden mellan seklerna by Michael Forsman with Duo Gelland, Gerd and Lars-Göran Ulander. Eden begins with a stop at NorrlandsOperan.

Co-organizer is Umeå kammarmusikförening who is also involved in organizing the Chamber Cruise to Vaasa / Korsholm.
