Northern Connection is a new and innovative project that aims to connect Nordic countries and Scotland by establishing and strengthening liaisons between composers, ensembles and festivals in contemporary music.
Northern Connection started in 2023 with the main partner countries Finland, Norway and Scotland. In 2024, the project continues with Iceland and Denmark joining. Northern Connection is initiated and led by Music Finland.
Each country’s commissioned works will be performed by one of the ensembles at a festival in at least one of the partner countries, and possibly more, during 2023 and the following years.
