The 90 members of Bergen Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (BFUng) make their Bergen International Festival debut on the open-air stage in the city square (Torgallmenningen).

The free concert opens with brilliant orchestral fireworks by Shostakovich, and continues with other popular works: Ravel’s hypnotic Bolero, Grieg’s Norwegian Dance, excerpts from Bizet’s Carmen; the familiar tunes are lined up.

BFUng made its official debut in 2015, the 250th anniversary of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, and now gives several concerts a year. The new youth symphony orchestra is run by Musikkselskapet Harmonien in collaboration with the Grieg Academy at the University of Bergen, the University of Stavanger and the Barratt Due talent programme in Bergen.

The young musicians, all aged from 15 to 25, come from throughout western Norway; the chief conductor is Kjell Seim.
