BALTIC SEA FESTIVAL

This year’s Baltic Sea Festival offered a dignifying buffet with both newly written and classical music–opera, folkton and Swedish jazz. World-renowned orchestras, choirs and soloists from the countries around the Baltic Sea offered a fantastic concert program that focused upon the 100th anniversary of the Baltic States, celebrating musical and artistic legends, featuring exciting and innovative performances.

The Baltic Sea Festival is a platform for dialogue about the Baltic environment’s sensitive environment and the festival’s three pillars of music, environment and leadership are still high-level.
