Participate in Järna Festival Academy from home

During the four years of Järna Festival Academy, Swedish and international prominent musicians have chosen to perform both well-known and obscure music during the festival. You are now warmly invited to re-live a selection of these festival experiences from home.

Camilla Lundberg and Måns Tengnér, two of the country’s most experienced music presenters, are hosting and moderating the programme. They will present well-chosen pieces from the best of previous chamber music festivals and lead exciting conversations about the music, the composers behind it and the spirit of the times, with thought-provoking contexts and unexpected topics linked to the music.

Many guest artists will join the programme and share their perspectives. Participants using Zoom Lounge will also be invited into the conversations and to participate in various social activities in connection with the salons.

The meetings take place in the form of a series of more than one hour-long digital gatherings every other Tuesday at 4 pm from December 1st 2020 until next Summer 2021. This digital festival is implemented with support from Signatur Foundation Sweden.

Selected topics for each digital meeting

Every digital meeting on Tuesdays from 4pm CET revolves around a pre-selected topic. Below are examples from the introductory programme. Camilla and Måns alternate as presenters and assistants and each meeting is also attended by one of JFA’s artistic leaders and another musician who talk about their musical perspectives.

January 26 at 4pm CET – Värmland song from Mantua
Participants: Måns&Camilla, TBA, Peter Friis Johansson

February 9 at 4pm CET – I long for Italy
