Siren is a festival for contemporary music arranged by students in the composition education at the Academy of Music and Drama. The programme ranges from solo pieces or chamber music to improvisation, performance, electronic music and meetings and collaborations between different art forms. The collection of composers and musicians consists of young students at the Academy of Music and Drama, and most of the works are new premieres written specifically for the festival. The festival takes place on 18-22 January at Artisten and Kulturtemplet, and all concerts are open to the public with free admission. The events are free so be in place well in advance. If you really do not want to miss a concert, it will be possible to reserve a place at specific concerts!
