Life without music is a mistake.
Kauniainen Music Festival is a new and different “hybrid festival” – a dialogue between arts and sciences, which offers both timeless and contemporary experiences and thoughts in music and words.
‘I wanted to create a diversified event that reflects the constantly accelerating flow of time. Even if the current intensifies, we can stay afloat when we keep our senses alert and prepare to face surprising crosscurrents,’ says professor Seppo Kimanen, the founder and Artistic Director of the festival.
In addition to the compositions and musicians, we will hear considered comments about contemporary culture in Kauniainen.
Art reflects what we are, but also simultaneously offers channels to change and mental spiritual growth. Art encourages, inspires and heals. The rituals of art cause positive interactive situations in the community and even help to handle traumatic experiences.
The goal of the event is to topple the border fences between generations and reflect the big curve arch from tradition to the future through art and thought.
