Time of Music (FI)

Time of Music (Musiikin aika) Festival is organised in the beginning of July every year in Viitasaari, Central Finland by the association Viitasaaren kesäakatemia. Since its inception in 1982, it has focused on cutting-edge contemporary music, inviting the most important composers and artists in the field to Finland and offering several premieres yearly among around 20 concerts. In addition to the artistic programme, the academy organizes summer courses for students aiming at professional careers and as such is an important international meeting point for professionals and students in music. The festival engages with different audience groups offering free concerts and talks, lectures about new music, workshops for adults and children and online presentations / broadcasts.
