This is something that deserves to be known and appreciated by local, national and international visitors.
Sastamala Old Church
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.
This is a historically important building, a beautiful and spiritually uplifting environment, and an acoustic space with unique qualities, which are perfectly suited to “early music”.
