The Savonlinna National Music Camp

Our music camp will be held next summer on June 29th – July 7th at the Savonlinna Christian Institute.

The institute is located 6 kilometers from the centre of Savonlinna in a beautiful and peaceful area. There is a regular bus connection to the institute from the town centre. Recently renovated facilities and a large, safe outdoor area provide a great backdrop for learning and recreation.

Our camp is intended for a solo player and singers of all ages.

The camp director’s greeting!

In the summer a group of children, adolescents and adults will be making music in the cultural landscape of Ritalanmäki. The environment and atmosphere are ideal for learning and creative activities. The intensive study program offers the students an excellent opportunity to broaden their musical skills and share uplifting experiences with others in orchestras, the choir and other ensembles. The students also have a chance to experience music and express emotions through movement in the creative movement lessons. The students get new perspectives into being a musician and explore different musical genres.

Get-togethers with the teachers and other students offer relaxation after an intensive day of learning: making crepes and grilling sausage, sauna, swimming and playing with popular youth leaders are part of the camp program. Professionals teach the eager and motivated students. The results can be enjoyed at performances throughout the week and at the final concert on Sunday.

I warmly welcome all students, new and old!

Olli Vartiainen, camp director
