Hailed as “one of Europe’s greatest promises” (Helsingin Sanomat), Tabita Berglund is one of today’s most exciting, talented young conductors who is fast gaining a reputation for her alert, charismatic and inspiring style which elicits “exceptional music-making” (The Arts Desk). Berglund is currently Principal Guest Conductor of Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra, appointed to this post following her debut engagement with the orchestra in 2020.
Symphonic highlights of the 2023/24 season include Berglund’s debuts with Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Berner Symphonieorchester, Orchestre National de Lyon, Philharmonia Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony, Dresdner Philharmonie, Düsseldorfer Symphoniker, Musikkollegium Winterthur, and Grafenegg Festival where she joins forces with Tonkünstler-Orchester Niederösterreich for the second time and ahead of further performances later in the season. Working together again with Philharmonia Orchestra, Berglund makes her Garsington Opera debut conducting a revival production of Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro. Other return highlights during the season include Berglund’s final concerts as Principal Guest of KSO, as well as engagements with Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife, Trondheim Symfoniorkester and Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra.
