Welcome to the 11th European Orchestra Festival in Bergen 2018!

Throughout four days in May, we wish to affect and contribute to strengthen the non-professional European Orchestra societies. For the first time, Norway is hosting the European Orchestra Festival and 25 orchestras will be visiting Bergen in May for concerts and workshops. Our mission is to create an arena where every single musician, the audience and the community will be encouraged by music, workshops and concerts.


All concerts are free of charge. Purchasing tickets is not necessary.
