Step into a world of musical innovation and modern soundscapes!

“Songs of the soul” presents exclusive new vocal music, selected by Ars Nova Copenhagen in collaboration with the International Society for Contemporary Music, which has appointed the ensemble to handle the vocal repertoire at the World New Music Days festival, which is being held this year in the Faroe Islands.

We don’t think you should be cheated to hear the program, so Ars Nova invites you to a concert where vocal beauty is the common element, and where even the sometimes harsh and dissonant can be a source of aesthetic pleasure. Look forward to experiencing a concert where completely new vocal music unfolds – moving, breathtaking and occasionally completely limitless. Immerse yourself in the power of the voice and experience music that explores and challenges the familiar.
