Bodil Arnesen is among the most talented Norwegian singers. Born in Harstad, she studied with Marit Storakre at the Togaland Conservatory, graduating in 1991 and continuing her training thereafter under BP funding at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, where she also took smaller parts. In 1994 she was one of the top prize winners of the prestigious Mirjam Helin International Singing Competition in Helsinki. This followed first prize in 1989 in the HRH Princess Astrid Music Contest in Trondheim and awards in the Munich ARD Competition, the Shell Prize and the BP Fellowship Prize. In 1991 she was also awarded the first Kirsten Flagstad Prize and acclaimed as European Music Prize Winner in Dresden by the Fordergemeinschaft der Wirtschaft. Her career has brought concerts and recitals in her country and abroad, with appearances throughout Europe, in the United States and in the Far East. In addition to this she has an equally active career in the broadcasting and recording studio. The 1994 Lillehammer Winter Olympic Organizing Committee appointed Bodil Arnesen to be one of the official Olympic Games musicians, participating in worldwide culture presentations. Since August 1994 she has had a cooperation and sponsorship agreement with the Norwegian State Oil Company, STATOIL.
