Welcome

to the site of the The Association of Faroese Composers

The purposes of the association are to nurture the interests of Faroese composers, to protect their rights and to actively seek to improve the composers’ artistic and financial circumstances. The association embraces all genres and is divided into two sections – one for classical and contemporary music (new written music) and one for rhythmical/popular music.

The association was founded on the 14thof November 1987. One of the association’s main tasks is to arrange the festival “Summartónar”, which is an annual festival for Contemporary and Classical music.

Here you can read more about the association, about the composers, compositions and more.

Summartónar 2021

The programme is published online on February 8th.  There will definitely be changes during the next 2 months. Possible programme alterations will be updated on this site. Due to Covid-19, Faroese Composers may have to rearrange several concerts for Summartónar 2021. However, we intend to have a finished programme ready to go into print in April.
