The 17th Kokkola Winter Accordion Festival takes place from February 15th to 22nd, presenting a diverse offering of daily performances and events. Artistic Director is Raimo Vertainen (picture right). Program download at: 2015Kokkola

This year’s lineup will feature both the old and the new. A wintry program with wide appeal and accordion music will be heard everywhere – in the villages, markets and street-corners. At the conservatory, we’ll hear Wagner’s compositions arranged for accordion.

Then there’s Young Virtuosos, concerts for children and seniors, music at the market, accordion orchestras and even opera singers! In other words, something for everyone. And for the second year in a row, we have worked in cooperation with our beloved neighboring city of Pietarsaari to present a spectacular festival Thursday.

The eventful week will be crowned the traditional way – but with a whole new twist in the form of a Grand Entertainment Concert by Guardia Nueva, conducted by Raimo Vertainen on Saturday, February 21. Soloists include Tango King Teemu Roivainen, Satamakadun Seiroeenit and Oona Airola

Come and enjoy the festival!
