Since 2001, the Arne Nordheim Composer’s Prize has been awarded annually to an innovative Norway based composer. It is given out every second year by the Department of Culture during the Ultima Festival of Contemporary Music.  
For the first time in the history of the Prize, MUNCH will be the venue for the presentation of this year’s prize concert and ceremony.  
At this special Nordheim Prize gala concert, the winner will receive their certificate and prize money, and the evening will feature performances of an exciting selection of the composer’s music.  

This concert is part of the Ultima Festival (15 – 24 September), where all the diversity of contemporary music can be experienced at venues all over Oslo. The festival is supported by the Arts Council Norway and Oslo City Council. More about Ultima at MUNCH.
