The Music Days have developed into the most important classical music summer event in the province of Östergötland, together with the Vadstena Academy (which produces mainly opera). But over the years, the concept of chamber music has broadened. Besides the classical-romantic repertoire, our programmes contain baroque, contemporary, jazz, Swedish folk music, ethnic music, blues, choir, church music… Many prominent actors, dancers and lecturers have taken part in cross-over concerts.
