On this site you will find information on the 39th
International Music Camp in Liminka, held on June
27 – July 9, 2005. Two weeks of intensive
teaching and high-quality concerts reach their

orchestra and its conductor, Mr. Jani

Ravel: Mother Goose (Mere L´Oye), D.
Shostakovich: Concerto for piano, trumpet and
string orchestra in C minor op.35, and J.
Sibelius: Symphony No 5.

orchestra camp: students play in an orchestra and
attend improvisation-based private lessons.

trips and outdoor sports. On Sunday, July 3, we will
visit to Varjakka,
a cape c. 20 kilometres from Oulu. The traditional
teachers vs. students soccer game is played after
You may enrol from January 3, 2005 onward either
