THE ORIGINS OF
In 2014, two old friends, musician/composer Þorvaldur Bjarni Þorvaldsson and film composer Atli Örvarsson, got together and started the SinfoniaNord project. What they were looking to accomplish was combining the knowhow, the talent, the network and the amazing facilities that have been an open secret in Akureyri, Iceland’s 2nd largest city. Furthermore, the idea was to offer world class orchestral services for film, games and television in the heart of the Northern hemisphere and assist anyone who needed to utilize an orchestra at live events. The city is something out of an adventure novel with natural wonders only minutes away.
