NOMEMUS – festival for Nordic Medieval Music
NOMEMUS makes medieval music alive today for a broad audience of all ages. We want to create a place for musical experiences and discoveries. Medieval music is presented in concerts but also through courses and lectures. The festival wants to teach and inspire people around medieval music of both secular and profane tradition, and hopes to create a meeting-place and network for artists, historical specialists and an interested audience.
The festival started in 2008 and takes place every year in the end of August or early September. This is at the same time as the town festival Söderköpings Gästabud. An event that focuses on medieval culture and the history of the town Söderköping . The festival works mainly with professional artists from the Nordic countries but also with artists from countries around the Baltic sea.
The program for this years festival is not yet decided, but there will be concerts in the churches in the evenings, and lectures during daytime. There will also be a course for singers and instrumentalists during all the festival days. Examples from earlier festival concerts can be viewed on the internet. (see social media below)
