Ben makes his debut with the Oslo Philharmonic on 11 August. The performance takes place outside the 12th-century Ringsaker Church as part of the Prøysen Festival and will be the Oslo Philharmonic’s first appearance here.

Ben will conduct the orchestra in an eclectic mix of repertoire including music from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet as well as many Scandinavian favourites.
