The orchestra has classical repertoire and contemporary music at its heart and performs annually at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert. Peruvian Miguel Harth-Bedoya is the Chief Conductor of the Radio Orchestra in Oslo since 2013, a position he combines with Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra in Texas where he is Music Director.

The Store Studio in Oslo is the home port of the Norwegian Radio Orchestra.
