About the festival

VII Ruskeala Symphony International Music Festival

Harmony of music and nature

The Ruskeala Symphony Festival appeared on the initiative of the Head of the Republic of Karelia Artur Parfenchikov in 2017. This event became a phenomenon in the cultural and tourist life of Russia and immediately entered the top 15 regional events of the country. The guests of the festival are attracted not only by the program of the event and the brilliant cast of performers, but also by the opportunity to visit a unique monument of nature and industry — man–made marble quarries that arose on the site of marble developments of the XVIII—XX centuries - the Ruskeala Mountain Park. The festival stages are located in the open air: in the pearl of the Mountain Park – the so-called "Italian Quarry", on the water surface of the "Marble Canyon" and in other parts of the park.

The festival is held annually. The Ruskeala Symphony program is interesting to the public with a variety of tastes and a variety of musical training. Classical music, modern compositions in classical processing, jazz, and even the artistic word have a place in the festival program.

The IV Ruskeala Symphony Festival was awarded the Grand Prix in the nomination "The best tourist event in the field of culture" at the IX National Award in the field of event tourism "Russian Event Awards-2020".

Organizers: The Government of the Republic of Karelia, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Karelia, the Karelian State Philharmonic and the Mountain Park "Ruskeala" (LLC "Kolmas").
