EVA: In Celebration of Women

In Celebration of Women

Eugene Vocal Arts

As the year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women attaining the right to vote, we trace the accomplishments of women composers, poets, artists, scientists, and public figures throughout history from composers Hildegard von Bingen in the 12th century, through Clara Schumann and Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel in the 19th Century, to Nadia Boulenger in the 20th century...women who have persevered to express themselves as artists against all odds.

EVA: The Unarmed Child

Performed by Eugene Vocal Arts, EUGENE CONCERT ORCHESTRA FEATURING DELGANI STRING QUARTET

We open our 45th season with The Unarmed Child, a heart-wrenchingly important work by composer Michael Bussewitz-Quarm created in response to gun violence against children.

Our commissioned movement, “Bird on a Wire”, relates the lament of a bird for its empty nest. "Hip Hopera" performer Adrian Dunn brings authenticity to the "Requiem" movement addressing the inner city, and the work as a whole offers a sensitive expression of hope.

Taking Flight

OMP

Kelly Kuo, conductor

A set of optimistic and confident marches by Mozart performed with members of the Eugene-Springfield Youth Orchestra as part of our educational partnership opens our season finale before the winners of our annual Young Soloist Competition dazzle with their winning concertos. A symphony by the “Spanish Mozart” completes our season on a hopeful note.

Beethoven & Bluegrass

OMP4 Beethoven

Kelly Kuo, conductor

We’re celebrating Beethoven’s 250th anniversary with his dramatic Coriolan Overture as well as his monumental, programmatic Pastoral Symphony. Violin virtuoso and brilliant bluegrass fiddler Tessa Lark is also featured in Michael Torke’s Sky, a concerto for which OMP is proud to be a member for the commissioning consortium.
