Event Calendar

Dear Friends,
We have decided to postpone the March 13th Benefit concert due to growing concerns about the spread of the coronavirus and the risk of COVID-19. Your safety and health are very important to ESYO, and things are changing quickly. We don’t want to put anyone at undue risk, and we feel for those around the world who have been affected. 
 
Although we are sorry not to share the beautiful music at this time, we are hoping to present the concert on May 1st. If things have improved, we will send a new invitation!
Many nonprofits in the area are sharing updated reports, and how they are managing when canceling or postponing events becomes more and more necessary. We have a wonderful community here, and we are grateful you are part of it.
 
Many thanks for your continued support,
the ESYO Family

 Benefit Concert Featured Soloist: Holly Stern, violin

An ESYO alumna, Holly grew up in Eugene and began playing in the Junior Symphony in 6th grade. Since then, she has had a long and active career with the Portland Baroque Orchestra, the Oregon Bach Festival, and the Portland Opera and Ballet Orchestras. She holds a BA from the UO and degrees in violin performance from Oberlin Conservatory and Indiana University. Holly will be playing Kreisler’s arrangement of de Falla’s exciting Danse Espagnol, and the beautiful Meditation from Thais by Massenet.

Four of our top musicians from the Youth Symphony will perform these challenging works!

Julia Daniels, Walton Viola Concerto, Mvmt. #1

Nate Tavakolian, Beethoven Violin Sonata #1, Mvmt. 1

Sophie Phillips-Meadow, Bach Prelude from Suite #2

Caleb Holt – Bourdeau, Premiere Solo for Bassoon

Donations will help us continue to provide scholarships, instruments, and classes, to help build future musicians like these performers.
Special thanks to our concert sponsor!
