WHAT HAPPENS TO JFA 2020?
Like so many things around us, Järna Festival Academy is affected by the current pandemic. The festival and masterclasses will still take place on the 17-25th of July in Kulturhuset in Ytterjärna but in a modified form. The thematic series will be performed as planned but primarily distributed online and free of charge. If the circumstances allow for it, a potential ticket release will take place at a date closer to the festival opening. Only artists living in Sweden will appear in the festival programme and the masterclasses will only be open for Swedish residents. JFA will take every precaution to ensure the safety of its musicians, students, employees and potential audiences. Running for Beethoven has been postponed to the summer of 2021. The website will be updated as artists are confirmed and the programme finalized. (posted May 4th)
BRAVE NEW WORLD
CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL – JULY 17-25 2020
2020 – a year of change.
The world is paralyzed by a virus while our planet suffers from the acute climate threat. These changes affect us all and whether we want to or not, we must learn to adapt. But change can also mean opportunities, a chance to reshape our existence for the better.
This year’s festival theme ‘Brave New World’ is about changes; both good and bad, how they affect us and how we choose to react. The theme comprises five concerts and lectures with leading Swedish artists and thinkers. In addition, rising star composer Jacob Mühlrad creates a chamber music work, inspired by the festival’s theme, to be performed over the course of the festival.
The entire program will primarily be distributed digitally and free of charge. In addition to the concerts, there will also be interviews, 360 cameras, ‘behind the scenes’ films and more. More information about the detailed programme and artists is to be published soon.
Physically distanced yet socially intimate, welcome to a kind of chamber music festival that you have never experienced before.
