Young Soloist Showcase

Young Soloist Showcase

Published at the height of his popularity, Elgar's Enfants d'un Rêve captures the essence of the "dreamy child" and comes face to face with the future of classical music. OMP's Assistant Conductor Evan Harger kicks off the program with Elgar's miniatures before the winners of OMP's third annual Young Soloist Competition take the stage to showcase the talents that earned them their appearances. The playful neoclassical fusion that is Prokofiev's Classical Symphony, ringing in the 100th anniversary of its composition, brings OMP's season to a celebratory close.

Serenade

Serenade

OMP's wind section takes center stage in this collection of gorgeous serenades by Strauss, Mozart, and Dvořák. Led by gifted guest conductor Mallory Thompson, Director of Bands at Northwestern University, this evening's program explores the musical world of winds through some of it's best-known repertoire.

Alpine Symphony

Alpine Symphony

We bid a fond farewell to Danail Rachev as he leads his final concert as Music Director of our Eugene Symphony. The majesty of Beethoven gives way to violin brilliance by Bruch, performed by Ryu Goto who wowed us all in his debut several seasons ago. Then, we scale the heights of Richard Strauss’s musical depiction of an intrepid ascent of a treacherous summit. Join us to say thank you to Danail and celebrate eight great years together!

The Damnation of Faust

The Damnation of Faust

Berlioz’s dramatic legend breathes life into Goethe’s timeless tale of love, temptation, and ruin. Our version will combine the power of the Eugene Symphony and Chorus with digital imagery, crafted especially for us by Harmonic Laboratory, projected on the interior surfaces of Silva Concert Hall to create an innovative and immersive performance experience.
