Orkester Norden is a Nordic symphony orchestra composed of some of the greatest talents from the Nordic countries. During an intense rehearsal and concert process, 40 carefully selected young musicians have enjoyed and celebrated the world of classical music together. Since 1993, Orkester Norden has been conducted by some of the greatest conductors, all committed to passing on their cultural heritage to the future generations of orchestra musicians. Internationally renowned names such as Esa-Pekka Salonen, Paavo Järvi and Vasily Petrenko have provided the musicians as well as the audiences with unique experiences.
Orkester Norden is in every way an inter-nordic project. Musicians, conductors, instructors, the organisation behind the orchestra and the financial contributors all represent the Nordic countries. Orkester Norden is a melting pot, where the Nordic cultural heritage is strengthened and influenced by new impressions. It is the source of something profoundly precious that the participants all take with them in their future careers as musicians.
Experience the stars of the future in this concert with some of the most talented young musicians of our time.
