Lahti Organ Festival is preparing for 2021!
Exceptional Lahti International Organ Festival 2020 is behind. Coronavirus prevented our foreign guests from travelling to Finland and our live concerts, except 9.9.2020. As an innovative and forward-looking festival, Lahti Organ Festival made a digileap! We did 4 top concerts online, for everyone free to watch! Links to our YouTube channel are on these homepages.
For all of these, Lahti International Organ Festival would like to thank the artists, the audience that followed the online and live concerts and our collaborators!!
Next summer, Lahti 49. International Organ Festival is from 9 to 15 August 2021. The program is currently being compiled. There will be something that has never been heard before…
If you, dear friend of organ music, have any ideas or wishes, we are ready to hear, please feel free to contact us!
Peace, Love and Organ Music!
