IsNord is a music festival which focuses on Icelandic and Nordic music. The festival takes place in Borgarfjordur, in West-Iceland, and this time the concerts will be held at three different locations in Borgarfjordur, the church in Borgarnes, the church in Reykholt and in Surtshellir, a very large cave in Iceland.
Our common musical heritage will be presented at the festival and many musical pearls by Icelandic composers as well as some of the best music from the other Nordic countries will be performed. The founders of the festival hope that the festival will make the Nordic music and especially the Icelandic music more accessible.
The purpose of the festival is to introduce the works of young Nordic composers as well as to review important works by older composers.
Director of the festival is Jónína Erna Arnardóttir.
