Halldis Rønning from Bergen, Norway is a conductor and violinist. She has conducted countless world premieres and contemporary pieces in concerts and festivals in Europe and Scandinavia. She received her first price for her conducting skills already at the age of 18, and has later conducted for all of Norway's symphony orchestras, but also a orchestras and ensembles in Sweden, the Netherlands and Vietnam.
In recent years Halldis has gradually moved towards a more creative platform, exploring improvisation with orchestras, composition and collaborative art projects across disciplines. Following intuition and sensations, she is interested in expanding the conductor's movements into a more performative role in stronger relation to other art forms.
