Summer Course

Early Music Summer Course at Itä-Hämeen opisto, Hartola, Finland

Welcome the world of early music! The Helsinki Early Music Society organizes an annual early music summer course. Early music enthusiasts from Finland and other countries gather together to have fun with early music.

Next year's course will be organized at Itä-Hämeen opisto, Hartola, Finland approximately 180 km North of Helsinki and 45 km North of Heinola. The course will begin on Saturday 24th July and end on Firday 30th July.

Registration for the 2021 course will start on the 1th of May and end on the 31st of May .

Due to coronavirus there can be changes in the course arrangements. We follow the situation and keep you informed. Let's hope for the best!

The fastest communication channel is our event page for the summer course in Facebook. All important information will be updated on these pages, as well, but there may be a slight delay. (You do not need to join FB to see the page. And while most of the discussion is in Finnish, you may ask any questions in English.)

New arrangement: members of CMAH are prioritized when choosing participants to the course

We have changed the choosing process to the course. The members of Helsinki Early Music Society (CMAH) have a priority in participating the summer course if there are more registrations for any instrument class than we can take. The other criterion for choosing participants is the order of registration (first-in-first-served). The membership is checked after the registration period and persons whose membership fee for 2021 has been received by the society.
