Welcome to the 2017-18 season of the Eugene-Springfield Junior Orchestra (JO)! JO is a full symphonic ensemble, which presents its own series of concerts and at the same time functions as a training group for the Eugene-Springfield Youth Symphony. The orchestra has been conducted by Dana Demant, long-time Springfield music educator, for the last six seasons. His retirement from ESYO brings a new conductor for Junior Orchestra, who will be announced soon.
The program fee is $430 for the full school year (scholarship assistance available – see registration packet). CLICK HERE to download your JO Registration Packet. Please read the entire packet carefully. Then print, fill out and return to ESYO, PO Box 5666, Eugene, OR 97405 with your payment.
Junior Orchestra (JO) rehearsals are held Monday evenings in the Roosevelt Middle School orchestra room from 6:45 to 8:45 pm (including federal holidays) beginning September 25, 2017.
IMPORTANT ENTRANCE instructions: Please go to the main parking lot on the east side of the building and walk around the back to the far door to the cafeteria/dining hall.
