OVERVIEW

Northern Europe is indeed a music treasury that nurtures a few very significant composers and conductors in the world. Finland, one of the Nordic countries, is famous for being the hometown of Jean Sibelius, one of the most influential composers in the late romantic period, and the inspiring education system. After intensive music training, a graduation concert will be held at the historic Temppeliaukio Kirkko (Rock Church), which is a unique, rough, virtually unworked rock surfaces concert church with excellent acoustics. Upon completion of music training and performance, another not-to-be-missed site is Santa Claus Village at the Arctic Circle. Certificate will be given to all crossed the Arctic Circle afterwards!
