But the Oslo Philharmonic will not stop playing! From Thursday 12th November, you can watch the orchestra online in the concert series Mellomspill II − a sequel to this spring's Mellomspill (Interlude) series, which lasted from April to June. (The recordings will be made in accordance with current infection control guidelines.)
