Festival Updates


Cancellation of Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra’s Concerts

The National Arts Council regrets to announce that the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra has cancelled its two performances on 21 and 22 June, due to official strike action called by the Musicians’ Union in Norway with effect from 16 June.  Refunds for the two shows will be made from 16 to 30 June 2006. Details of how to obtain the refunds are in the Annex.


Audiences are encouraged to catch the Festival’s diverse range of quality arts performances before the season draws to a close on 25 June. For classical music fans, tickets to performances of Collegium Vocale Gent (Belgium) and Camerata Salzburg (Austria) are still available.
