Mänttä Music Festival
Mänttä Music Festival is the only piano festival in Finland, and has been organized for already 15 years. The festival features a wide range of pianists, from internationally famous artists to young Finnish talents. The brand new Serlachius Museum Gösta will be the new main concert venue. The main concert of the festival is by Paul Lewis (Great Britain) who will play Beethoven.
The Art Town Mänttä-Vilppula, the home of this festive is a beating heart of culture. Mänttä was founded due to large forests around it, water rapids running through the town and the paper patron G.A. Serlachius founding an industrial community to this small rural town. Now Mänttä is also a home of a great collection of older Finnish and European art at the Serlachius Fine Arts Foundation. In June 2014 there is an opening of a new great pavilion for modern and contemporary exhibitions, designed by MX_SI studio, Barcelona.
The unique surroundings with sensational collections of arts alongside a selection of quality restaurants offers an unforgettable experience! This summer art and music is all around in Mänttä, also by the streets and parks, even at the façade of Mänttä Church.
