Nobel Peace Prize Concert
The Nobel Peace Prize Concert has been held annually since 1994 on 11 December.
The Nobel Peace Prize Concert is a musical celebration of the Nobel Peace Prize laureates.
The first concert was held in 1994 at the National Theatre in Oslo. In 1995, a concert featuring only classical works was held. Since 1998, the Nobel Peace Prize concert has been held in Oslo Spektrum, featuring a wide range of musical genres with Norwegian and international artists. Originally, the show was hosted by Norwegian celebrities or television personalities. However, since the year 2000 hosts have with few exceptions come from the United States of America.
In 2015, the concert was moved to the much larger venue Telenor Arena, until it was cancelled in 2018. Instead, an outdoor Nobel Peace Party was organised outside the Oslo City Hall.
In 2021, the Nobel Peace Prize Concert was relaunched in a completely new fashion in collaboration with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, architectural firm Snøhetta and the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation.
