In recent years the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra (SSO) has achieved considerable artistic development and has attracted steadily larger audiences, both in Norway and abroad.
In September 2012 the orchestra moved into Stavanger's new concert hall, with two main halls that are acoustically on a par with the very best in Europe and also give the musicians the best work conditions.
CHRISTIAN VASQUEZ has held the post of chief conductor since 2013.
We are surrounded by beautiful nature, close to both mountains and ocean, so you have plenty of possibilities for outdoor activities when you are not working.
Stavanger also offers a wide range of cultural events, and the city was European Capital of Culture 2008.
