Director's greeting

Welcome to Liminka Music Weeks' website!
45th Liminka Music Camp 28 June – 8 July 2011.

Liminka music camp, organised as part of Liminka music weeks, is the oldest and currently the largest symphony orchestra camp in Finland. Music weeks aims to establish itself as a cultural event catering to the tastes of all ages.

In honour of the 45th Liminka music camp, the symphony orchestra will play Freischütz Overture by C. M. von Webern, Concerto for French Horn and Orchestra by R. Strauss, and Symphonic Suite op. 35 “Sheherazade” by N. Rimsky-Korsakov. The camp hosts six orchestras in all: symphony orchestra, junior strings, string orchestra, Brass Ensemble, clarinet ensemble Clarinade, and conductor’s orchestra.

Concerts and Sounds! -events are realised by our own teachers and students. The teachers are once again top-level, both nationally and internationally.

Although emphasis is traditionally put on daily orchestral work and private lessons, camp curriculum includes a wide variety of activities. New courses include interactive violin master class, brass septet course, Colourstrings introductory course for teachers, and musical playschools for both juniors and seniors.

Press releases I and II with more info on the upcoming concerts and courses will be published on-line on 6 April 2011 and 6 June 2011.

Older campers are invited to enjoy zumba and the facilities of the nearby sports hall, while youngsters busy themselves with various sports activities and - weather permitting - outdoor swimming.

Through this site you may enrol to the camp between 14 February and 6 May 2011, or send questions to teachers. If you need additional information regarding application or fees, do not hesitate to contact our staff at

On behalf of the organizers I wish to thank all parties who make this yearly event possible.

Liminka Music Camp is not affiliated with any religious or political cause.

I warmly welcome you to Liminka!

From ideas to sounds,

Heidi Mantere
