The artistic leader of the sinfonietta, Tim Weiss, has been working as musical director for the Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble in the USA for 23 years. He has lead orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia in London and the Melbourne Symphony in Australia.
Our sinfonietta mainly plays music from the 20th and 21st centuries. All musical activity in the Arctic Philharmonic shows the northern and arctic profile. The sinfonietta is a string quintet, a wind quintet, a trumpet, a trombone, a piano and percussion.
Through each year the musicians work with soloists and musical leaders who visit Bodø on a regular basis.
“The Arctic Philharmonic sinfonietta players are clearly world class.”
