Blaine’s one-man show brings his unique brand of entertainment, promising to be an unforgettable interactive experience that both shocks and amuses. An experiment in and of itself, the tour will evolve as it moves across the country as Blaine continues to push the limits and attempt new feats for the first time live in front of his audiences. No two shows will be exactly the same.
Pre-concert events begin in the Lobby at 5:30 pm
Eugene Symphony’s outside-the-box concert experience and a cultural celebration – returns by popular demand! The concert itself features the lively genre-bending trio Time for Three who play Bach to Brahms and beyond, plus original mash-ups of hits by the Beatles, Kayne West, Katy Perry and more! Then, one of Eugene’s most beautiful voices, Siri Vik, will make her Eugene Symphony debut with signature songs by Edith Piaf.
W. Kamau Bell is a socio-political comedian based in The People’s Republic of Berkeley, CA. Kamau is the host of CNN’s new travel show, "The United Shades of America." Kamau is best known for his critically acclaimed, but criminally short-lived FX comedy series, "Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell." Kamau is also proud to be the ACLU’s Ambassador of Racial Justice. Although he’s pretty upset that they didn’t give him a badge along with the title. Kamau sits on the advisory board of race forward, a racial justice think tank, and Hollaback, a non-profit movement to end street harassment.
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!
This Mother’s Day weekend, choreographer-producers Donna and Hannah Bontrager re-imagine the centerpiece of the 1001 Nights with a Ballet Fantastique twist in an all-new Aladdin. Follow our indomitable hero, not through the golden age of legends, but rather through the turbulent 1970s in a provocative and playful version of this oft-told tale. With Satin Love Orchestra’s showstopping versions of the classic anthems of Queen, and the set design of brilliant Eugene-based designer Don Carson, Aladdin delivers all the color and tumult of the ‘70s, BFan style.
