Trondheim Jazz Orchestra

Trondheim Jazz Orchestra is one of the most important and creative jazz ensembles in Norway. Since it was established in 2000, the orchestra has had a great number of exciting projects with Norwegian and international jazz profiles such as Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Joshua Redman, Erlend Skomsvoll, Eirik Hegdal, Sofia Jernberg, Maria Kannegaard, Kim Myhr, Jenny Hval, Stian Westerhus, Ståle Storløkken, Kristoffer Lo, and Marius Neset. The orchestra belongs to the Mid-Norway Centre of Jazz which initiates and organises new projects. The orchestra is operated as a musicians’ pool, so that the orchestra changes as to instrumentation and size from project to project. This gives room for great width in their repertory. The musicians that have been involved in the orchestra are amongst Norway’s most famous jazz profiles. Since 2017, the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra has been led by bassist Ole Morten Vågan.
