Christmas visits

the orchestra is coming to you

See dates and tickets

We will hold a series of special concerts in December, but where should be play? We are repeating the last year's successful initiative and giving everyone in Bodø and Tromsø an opportunity to receive a musical visit in the lead-up to Christmas.

We have surprised colleagues during lunch, spread joy in a public place and played a concert involving a full orchestra in a private lounge. Do you know someone who deserves their very own concert?

 During the cold days of December, we will travel around in Bodø and Tromsø to get people in the mood for Christmas.

In previous years we were inundated with good suggestions, and we travelled on pre-Christmas visits to a wide variety of places including a birthday party at Bodøgaard, Solneset School, the University of Nordland, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration in Bodø, the Adult Education Centre of Tromsø, NAV Tromsø, the Airport, in kindergardens, at Nursing Home and Posten’s terminal, to mention but a few!

If you want to suggest a place the orchestra can play, please send us an e-mail before November at
