The orchestra’s summer concerts at Torgallmenningen has become a fine tradition.

Good music, warm summer evenings and a packed Torgallmenning are key words for the last years’ concerts. We repeat last year’s success with two free concerts, on Thursday and Friday, both with Chief Conductor Edward Gardner. 

9 degrees north of the equator lies the island of Sri Lanka, where the majority of our guest artists this evening, the eclectic band 9 Grader Nord, originate. With instruments such as the bamboo flute, guitar, and the cajón, 9 Grader Nord perform ragas from A to Z. The four members of the band take us on a musical journey to Bergen, 60 degrees north.

Edward Gardner and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra offer popular works by Tchaikovsky, Mascagni, Bizet, Elgar and Grieg.

The concerts are made possible through the generous support of Mr Trond Mohn
