About BIOF

Bodø International Organ Festival is an annual festival taking place at the end of April.

Bodø International Organ Festival was created in 2002, after the inaguration week for the new organ in the Rønvik church proved very successful, and since 2003 it has been known as BIOF. The festival always takes place at the end of April, on the week of April 26th, which is the birth date of famous local composer Fridthjov Anderssen (born 1876). During the festival week you can experience classical organ concerts, the organ in new and different settings, jazz concerts, lunch concerts, choir conserts, master classes and other organ related conserts and events. In addition to this, the seminars and youth courses hosted by the North Norwegian Centre for Church Music always take place at the same time. Along with students from different music colleges and universities, all the participants join in to make our festival a great experience. 

Dates for the 2016 festival are April 22-26. (Friday through Tuesday). The festival program will be announced shortly.
