Join the Oslo Philharmonic Behind the Scenes

In a new video series, the Oslo Philharmonic's musicians and chief conductor Klaus Mäkelä answer questions from the audience and talk about orchestral life from the inside.

Bak Scenen

What is the most embarrassing thing that can happen to an orchestra musician? Do professional musicians get nervous when they go on stage? How do they prepare? And what exactly is the role of the conductor?

You'll get answers to these and many other questions in the Oslo Philharmonic's new video series "Behind the Scenes". A new episode will be posted each Sunday night on the ofo.no front page and on the Oslo Philharmonic's Youtube channel, where you will also find a separate playlist for the series.
