    Anually the Association of Faroese Composers arranges the Summartónar festival – the composers and songwriters festival of classical and contemporary music.
    Over the years more than 1600 concerts have been presented and each year several new works are performed – over 600 compositions have had their world premieres at Summartónar, the vast majority of these written by Faroese Composers.
    The majority of the programme is of Faroese music, performed by Faroese musicians. However, Summartónar is also an international event with visiting performers, composers, and song-writers from around the world: this year from Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Spain, Norway, Siberia, Iran, Austria, USA, Scotland, Poland, Germany, England, Japan, The Netherlands, Switzerland and Greenland.
    A new project, which started last year, is being developed further in 2019. Encouraged by artists in Norway,Sweden and Finland along the latitudes 62 to 63 degrees North (see http://northcultitude6263.com), the Association of Faroese Composers has invited artists from Greenland, Iceland, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Siberia who are based along the 62-63 latitudes, to form a sinfonietta: Ensemble 6263.
