The Extraordinary Music Festival intends to join various trends in sacral music, sometimes distant in style and time. During the first edition of the festival the common denominator is the cult of the Virgin Mary.

We will hear five concerts – among the repertoire we find Marian antiphons, English Renaissance a cappella works, Estonian traditional songs and anthems and Orthodox Church music. The star of the festival will be Belgian ensemble Graindelavoix.

Admission to all concerts is free of charge.
