Orkester Norden (ON) is the most talented youth symphony orchestra in the Nordic and Baltic regions. The orchestra consists of young conservatoire musicians in the age between 15 to 25, who meet every summer to rehearse, laugh, and to try life in a professional symphony orchestra. This year, rehearsals takes place in Musikkens Hus in the host city Aalborg, Denmark. Hereafter, the concert tour will take the orchestra to Latvia, Estonia, and Finland. This year, Finland marks its 100-year anniversary and ON is looking forward to joining the celebrations. This year, the conductor is Swedish Johannes Gustavsson who knows Orkester Norden particularly well since he himself has been a member of the orchestra, playing the viola. Today, Johannes is chief conductor of Wermland Opera in Sweden and regularly works with the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra. Johannes has held senior conducting posts at the Västerås Sinfonietta, the Nordic Chamber Orchestra, and at the Oulu Symphony Orchestra.

Susanna Andersson is born in Sweden and is praised for her beautiful vocal. Susanna has had big rolls in a great number of opera houses in many parts of the world and has performed with many prominent orchestras, among others Copenhagen Phil, Helsinki Philharmonic, and BBC Concert Orchestra, etc.

Also, Swedish musician Jakob Koranyi has impressed the critics with his elegant and light style. Jakob has established himself as one of the most interesting, young soloist on the classical scene in Europa with performances in Barcelona, Paris, and Vienna, etc. In addition to performing with Orkester Norden in 2017, Jakob will play concerts with Orquesta Filmharmonica de Bogata and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.
