About the festival


Valdres Summer Symphony has, since its beginning in 1994, slowly established itself as one of the most exciting classical music festivals in Norway. The festival features around 30 public concerts each year and retrieves soloists and chamber musicians from around the world. Musicians such as Truls Mørk and Maxim Rysanov, Stephen Kovacevich, Vilde Frang, Itamar Golan and Henning Kraggerud has recently visited the festival. The festival has also had concerts with symphony orchestras such as the Oslo Philharmonic, The Norwegian Radio Orchestra, Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra . The concerts take place all around beautiful Valdres, with its center in Fagernes. Our artistic director Guro Kleven Hagen has, since 2015, been responsible for the concert program and artists.
