ABOUT THE ORCHESTRA

The Kringkastingsorkestret or Norwegian Radio Orchestra was founded in 1946 in affiliation with the national broadcaster NRK in Norway. 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.
