In the middle of Bodø city center, on the "best plot in town", are two white houses close together. Stormen, with library and concert hall, opened on November 15, 2014 and the buildings have already won several architectural awards.
In the heart of Stormen Concert Hall you will find the Great Hall with room for about 900 seated audiences. The house also has a stage tower which provides great opportunities for theatrical scenery and exciting scenography. The concert hall has already gained a reputation as one of the world's best halls for performing acoustic music, and our Steinway grand piano is hand-picked by Leif Ove Andsnes. In addition, there is a small hall with room for 250, a chamber hall with room for 80 and foyers, well suited for both receptions, concerts and other events.
In the basement you will find Sinus, Bodø's legendary club stage, with room for 460 in the audience on two levels. The daily activity in the house involves everything from large rock concerts, classical masterpieces, theater productions and dance - in addition to large and small courses and conferences.
