Albu klaverilaagri muusikud
Suvel 2022, 22.-31. juulil toimub esmakordselt Albu mõisas Kammermuusikute korraldatud väike rahvusvaheline klaverifestival: Albu Klaverilaager. Traditsioon Albus muusikalaagreid korraldada on saamas sel suvel kümne aastaseks. Sellest kasvas välja mõte kutsuda Albusse külla tuntud klaveripedagoogid Soomest, Sibeliuse Akadeemiast – abielupaar Hui-Ying ja Erik Tawaststjerna. Nende osalus Albu festivalil toob kaasa mitmed tuntud noored klaverimängijad nii eestist kui välismaalt. Festivali raames toimuvad Albu mõisas meistrikursused ning kontserdid nii juhendajate kui õpilastega. Klaverifestivali kontserdid toimuvad ka teistes mõisates üle eesti.
