DUE TO THE CORONA CRISIS
...the original setup for the 24th Grieg in Bergen festival has been cancelled or strongly modified. On the net site you can both find the original program and which concerts which actually will take place this summer. We sincerely hope that we will be fully back with a normal season in 2021. Meanwhile, we invite you to enjoy the concerts we presently can offer.

In the 24TH EDITION
of Grieg in Bergen Int Festival, an exciting program is waiting for you to enjoy. As ususal, our concert menu inludes artists & ensembles from several countries, all of them contributing highly to our festival. During the full evening concerts they will feature a variety of music, not to forget their own national music, which along with many of the composers you love and performed to an international audience, gives you an experience for life.

LATE NIGHT CONCERTS
are introduced from this season. Michael Süssmann, art director, explains: «We wanted to create a special intimate athmosphere and environment for a concert experience which brings artists and audience very close together. Each concert will have it´s own theme, a kind of concert & story concept». Out of a total of 36 concerts, 11 will be late night concerts, starting at 10.30 pm.

THE YOUNG AND GIFTED TALENTS have always had a high ranking in our festival. Most of them are already highly acclaimed prize winners of music competitions. The enormous energy they create on stage transfers vitality and the level of maturity is impressing the audience. Just lean back and enjoy!

6 WEEKS DURATION
There will be a total of 36 concerts from middle of July till almost end of August. Held in the charming Korskirken, the Church of the Cross, located at Bergen downtown, just 150 meters from Bryggen.

MUSICANORD - the CONCERT MAKER OF BERGEN
With more than 1800 concerts organized since 1993, MusicaNord has earned a reputation as the Concert Maker of Bergen. GRIEG IN BERGEN is now our main festival, and a long lasting one. Starting normally around mid June, it runs until almost end of August. The foundation MusicaNord was establsihed in 1991. We opened our first concert serie in 1993 in the home of ancient violon virtuoso Ole Bull (1810 - 1880), and had concerts there for 5 years. In 1997 we started the Floien-Concerts, with 70 concerts every summer at the Top of Floien Mountain.

Then, in the year 2000, our Bergen International Chamber Music Festival came to life. This very fine event later changed its name to Grieg in Bergen. In 2004, MusicaNord established the Ole Bull Prize..

MusicaNord has through the years also produced numerous events like the Bergen Story (performed numerous time) closed events for conferences and congresses, and different events inside chamber music.
