About Leufsta Cahman Academy
In the forests of northern Uppland lays the old community Lövstabruk. Lövstabruk was once one of the world's most successful and Sweden's largest ironworks dating from the 16th century. From the beginning of the 1640s and for thirteen generations onwards, Lövstabruk was owned by the de Geers family.
The village is today an appreciated destination with a lot to offer. A genuine 18th century environment with mansion, park, orangery, utility street and church – with the famous Cahman organ from 1728.
The parish of the Church of Sweden Tierp in collaboration with Uppsala Diocese, Uppsala Cathedral and Uppsala University invites you to Leufsta Cahman Academy. There you get a unique opportunity to visit the 18th century and to experience baroque music in its right environment.
The artistic director is the organist of the Cahman organ, Lukas Arvidsson. The management group also consists of Uppsala Diocese's music consultant Mats Stenlund, Professor Karin Nelson and piano musician and organist Ulrika Davidsson, Professor Hans-Ola Ericsson and Pastor Kristin Elf.
Leufsta Cahman Academy collaborates with Church of Sweden Östhammar, Lövstabruks Kulturförening, Sensus, Lövstabruks Värdshus, Lövstabruks Herrgård and Klaverens hus.
