MUSICANORD - the CONCERT MAKER OF BERGEN
With more than 1800 concerts organized since 1993, MusicaNord has earned a reputation as the Concert Maker of Bergen. GRIEG IN BERGEN is now our main festival, and a long lasting one. Starting normally around mid June, it runs until almost end of August. The foundation MusicaNord was establsihed in 1991. We opened our first concert serie in 1993 in the home of ancient violon virtuoso Ole Bull (1810 - 1880), and had concerts there for 5 years. In 1997 we started the Floien-Concerts, with 70 concerts every summer at the Top of Floien Mountain.
Then, in the year 2000, our Bergen International Chamber Music Festival came to life. This very fine event later changed its name to Grieg in Bergen. In 2004, MusicaNord established the Ole Bull Prize.
MusicaNord has through the years also produced numerous events like the Bergen Story (performed numerous times), closed events for conferences and congresses, and different events focusing on chamber music.
