Norrbottensmusiken is a county institution within Region Norrbotten and is active in all 14 of the county’s municipalities. The institution is home to the organizations Norrbotten NEO, Norrbotten’s Chamber Orchestra, Piteå Chamber Opera and Norrbotten Big Band. Norrbottensmusiken also has an extensive program for children and youth, partly in the form of school concerts with our own and freelance artists and ensembles, but also in the form of youth ensembles, such as the girls’ youth choir Arctic Light, Norrbotten’s Youth Symphony Orchestra and Arctic Youth Jazz Orchestra.
Norrbotten NEO is Sweden’s only full-time ensemble for new music, and in addition to their work in the region, the ensemble tours nationally and internationally. The ensemble has a close collaboration with both established composers and composition education, and regularly commissions music from Swedish and international composers.

The chamber orchestra and chamber opera productions occur over 6-8 weeks per year.

As an employee of Norrbotten Music you will also participate in workplace get-togethers and other meetings related to day-to-day operations. To be able to participate fully in Norrbotten’s musical life we consider it favourable that you, the applicant, contemplate moving to the region.
