Trondheim Symphony Orchestra & Opera (TSO), with chief conductor Han-Na Chang, is looking for a violinist for both TSO and The Trondheim Soloists (TS).

Some of the positions in our string sections entail duty to perform both for TSO and TS. The vacancy in question is this sort of combined position, and it entails approximately 2/3 of work for TSO and 1/3 of work for TS. In TSO the duty will, over the seasons, entail serving in both the violin sections.

To make sure you are included in the Norwegian society, it is important for us to help you learn Norwegian. This is our main language at work.
