BRQ Vantaa Festival is the most important early music festival in Finland. The main focus of BRQ Vantaa is on musical delights. Organizers strive to keep the programme fresh, innovative and experimental by extending its focus from the Baroque era to encompass Medieval, Renaissance and even Classical to modern periods. Leading artists place special emphasis on works not previously heard in Finland, and in 2015 the festival featured its first Fringe series to showcase emerging young musicians. The unique historical milieu of the Medieval Church of St. Lawrence provides the chief venue. Another important venue is beautiful, modern Chapel of St. Lawrence located next to the church.
