Upcoming Meany Arts Tour: Rosendal Chamber Music Festival in Norway | August 3–13, 2024.

Escape the summer heat and venture to Norway to attend the Rosendal Chamber Music Festival!

Founded in 2016 by pianist and Artistic Director Leif Ove Andsnes, the Rosendal Chamber Music Festival has established itself as one of the most interesting and unique festivals of its kind. Exploring a different theme each year centered around a particular composer or musical period, Rosendal has made its international mark as “a small but big festival in the wilds of Norway” (El Pais), “rich and precious for the quality of the performers and for the depth of its themed programs” (La Repubblica). Traveling at the height of summer season, with fresh mild air, outdoor dining and vibrant city streets, our journey will take you for up-close encounters with famous and surprising art masterpieces, remarkable historic sites, ravishing Norwegian landscapes and exciting new museums. The rhythm of our itinerary works hard to provide a pleasant, wide-ranging experience with a generous sprinkling of outdoor activities, including an amazing sculpture park in Oslo, a fun-filled funicular ride in Bergen and a remarkable fjord ferry cruise — all resplendent in the Scandinavian summer.

We begin our Norwegian adventure discovering Oslo’s urban cosmopolitan panache and unexpected great museums. We continue to Norway’s “second city”, colorful Bergen, famous for its beautiful historic port and jaw-dropping natural surroundings. Then we take a ferry ride through stunning fjords for our four-night stay in Rosendal to attend all of the concerts of the Rosendal Chamber Music Festival. We return to Bergen for a final day of relaxing pursuits.

Tour Highlights:
• Attend all the classical concerts, lectures and music events at the four-day Rosendal Festival.
• Visit the Munch Museum, one of the most exciting new art museums in Europe of the last twenty years. See its terrific collection, including the famous Scream, and admire its beautiful waterfront architecture. Dine at the elegant rooftop restaurant of the Munch Museum with unrivalled views over Oslo.
