Artistic Director of SCENATET, Anna Berit Asp Christensen, has taken the initiative to establish an ensembleORCHESTRA consisting of some of Scandinavia’s best new music ensembles:
Curious Chamber Players
Ensemble Adapter
Nordic Affect

With the ensembleORCHESTRA, skills, knowledge, creativity and – above all – resources are combined with the aim of initiating and carrying out composers’ works and concert productions at a level not previously seen in Scandinavia. The ensembleORCHESTRA offers composers of our time a big, highly qualified and dedicated “ensemble instrument” to realize their ideas.

The ensembleORCHESTRA premiered at a concert at Nordic Music Days 2016, with an extensive concert programme showcasing cutting edge works by Nordic composers.
