Do you have an idea for an innovative and exemplary production that can be performed during Ultima? The application deadline is Friday, 12 May.

Ultimafestivalen stretches the boundaries of what music and listening can be. With creative expression and wonder about societal issues, Ultima offers musical encounters and listening experiences across conventions, art forms and musical genres.

The Norwegian Academy of Music is a laboratory for what is happening in the music field and what will happen in the future. On Ultima's opening day on 14 September, different directions are drawn in the landscape, and we let the public tread their paths in the building. We invite the public to our homes, open up the whole of NMH and share different perspectives, experiences and experiences in and through music.

This is an announcement for students and staff within all sections at NMH. We seek innovative and experimental ideas, productions and projects across genres.
