NKS2020 becomes NKS2021

The Nordic Church Music Symposium 2020 will be postponed by a year due to the worldwide effects of COVID-19. The local organizer has decided that it is not motivated to organize the symposium in 2020 because of the current conditions. The situation in the other Nordic countries is also challenging and in this kind of situation the safety and well-being of the artists and audience must come first.

The Nordic Church Music Symposium will be organized on August 26th to 29th, 2021 in Helsinki. We try to keep the program intact as far as possible, but some events might be impossible to keep on the program because of different reasons. The new program will be published on www.nks.2020.fi

The registration is now closed. Already made registrations will be automatically transferred to NKS2021. The registration for NKS2021 opens during autumn and the registration fee will be 280 euro.

It is very sad that we are not able to proceed with the NKS2020 as planned but we wish to believe that we instead in August 2021 can offer an interesting, excellent and sympathetic symposium in our beautiful Helsinki!
