Föreningen för Julitafestivalen
The Julita Festival is held at Julita Manor House in Sörmland. Over the course of years, artists from more than 20 countries have taken part in this important musical event. A variety of genres are presented—comprising medieval music to baroque, tango, opera, contemporary music, and, of course, what is known as classical chamber music, can be enjoyed in these unique Swedish surroundings. The main idea of the festival is to promote young and internationally promising musicians, and also to offer a varied program, which underlines the musical uniqueness of each country. Light summer refreshments are offered in the beautiful park surroundings of the Manor House. The founder and artistic director of the festival is Swedish pianist Carl Pontén.
