Søbygaard concerts on Aeroe

Every summer on Aeroe a string of classical concerts are held at the restored manor house Søbygaard. 

Søbygårdsvej 2

5985 Søby Ærø

Some of the country's best classical soloists, ensembles and chamber musicians bring another rally here to exploit hall's fine acoustics and the audience's enthusiastic commitment.

The concert hall was completed in 1999 and is built with inspiration from the Faroese wooden churches. It contains a series of sketches for stained glass, made by the painter Sven Havsteen-Mikkelsen.

The audience sits close to the podium, so every touch of cello-bow and every stop on the piano can be heard and felt. The musicians have often expressed that the audience in Søbygaard hall leads them to give their best, because it's so enthusiastic.

There is room for 120 spectators and it is a good idea to buy tickets before the concert, which starts 19.30. The admission is 150 kr. For adults and 20 kr. Children under 16 years.

Food with a view

Many come early with a picnic bag and sit by the tables under the big walnut tree in the courtyard, from which they can now admire the "castle" surrounded by water. They can also take a little stroll around the lake or climb the ramparts of the fortress from which they can enjoy the beautiful view of Vitsø  and the Baltic Sea.

The association "Friends of Søbygaard"

The Søbygaard Concerts are run by a group of volunteers called "Friends of Søbygaard". Any profits from the concerts go to the maintenance and running of Søbygaard.

The association can boast of being the owner of one of the country's best-Fazioli pianos.
