    The Association of Faroese Composers (Felagið Føroysk Tónaskøld - FFT) organizes as its main yearly project the festival Summartónar. Each year, since 1992, concert halls and churches in Tórshavn and all over the Faroe Islands have served as venues for the Summartónar Festival of Classical and Contemporary Music. Organized by the Association of Faroese Composers, Summartónar has played a vital role in the development of Faroese composition. For the last few years the festival has been running for 10 weeks during June-August with more than 150 events.

    The 2014 programme reflected the festival’s role as a platform for new compositions by Faroese composers and included first performances of works by among others Tróndur Bogason, Kári Bæk, Kristian Blak, Mikael Blak, Heðin Ziska Davidsen, Edvard Nyholm Debes, Eivør, Pauli Hansen, Sámal Jákup Jacobsen, Alvi Joensen, Kenneth Jones, Kim Kristensen, Agnar Lamhauge, Arnold Ludvig, Herluf Lützen, Ingmar Berg Mikkelsen, Angelika Nielsen, Ólavur Olsen, Atli Petersen, Sunleif Rasmussen, Rógvi á Rógvu, Pauli í Sandagerði, Páll Sólstein and Teitur.

    Summartónar is an international festival and 2014 presented artists and compositions from especially Austria, Denmark, Great Britain, Greenland, Iceland, Poland, Sweden.

    The composers are active in the cultural life in the Faroe Islands in general, they work across genres, including also improvised music and music with ethnic roots. In addition to the Summartónar FFT organized the Spring Concert with mainly first performances. Individually Faroese composers have works performed internationally.

    In collaboration with musician/composer owned label Tutl several recordings were released with FFT composers' works
