The Council of Nordic Composers, Nordiska komponistrådet (NKR), is an organization working for the interests of 1000 composers of classical music, art music, electroacoustic music and sound art in the Nordic countries. The members are the societies of composers in Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Faroe Islands. The Council of Nordic Composers was founded in 1947. We arrange the festival for contemporary Nordic music Nordic Music Days, each year hosted in a different country.
Antti Auvinen, the president of the Finnish Composer’s Society has been elected president of the Council of Nordic Composers in 2017.
