Participating in




Musikkforeningen Nidarholm from Trondheim was founded in 1924.

The members are aged 19 to 67, and a fine blend of amateurs, music students and professional musicians. The band has made good musical progress during the last decade, and won the Norwegian National Championship in 2019, an achievement which was repeated in 2022.

The band's vision is to always provide the best possible musical experience for both the band and the audience, and the repertoire chosen maintains a high musical level.

Bjørn Sagstad (b.1968) has his formal music education from the Royal Northern College of Music, the Grieg Academy as well as NTNU, studying orchestra, opera and choir conducting. His belief in a istening and exploring leadership model has secured engagements for him as musical director, visiting conductor and conducting teacher worldwide.

Since 2021 he has held a professorship for wind orchestra conducting at the Hochschule für Musik FHNW in Basel.

His work expands from the classical masters and contemporary music to ballet, opera, choir, entertainment, and folk music.

One of his main strengths is to provide the individual musician the trust they need to make them perform collectively at their best.
