Sastamala Gregoriana Festival



Sastamala Gregoriana is an early Music Festival that combines an excellent international concert programme from medieval, renaissance and baroque periods, old lakeside churches of Sastamala with unique acoustic space and warm local atmosphere. This is something that deserves to be known and appreciated by local, national and international visitors. Sastamala Old Church is a gem of a venue for the performance of music that is contemporary with its history. Its vaulted wooden ceiling, rough hewn stone walls, dirt floor and quiet location combine to make it one of the finest acoustical environments in the world for solo vocal music and small ensembles. Its peaceful, natural environment gives it a further special character, and the surrounding silence deepens the peace and beauty of the musical experience for performers and audiences. Sastamala (ca. 57 km from Tampere to southwest) is a true buried treasure; its ancient, vast lake sceneries and fertile fields combined to a lovely small town idyll with its lively city centre create an unique atmosphere that is at the same time fresh and familiar.  Sastamala truly is a place worth seeing and visiting!
