Since the 1970s, Eugene has played host to an amazing summer music festival - the Oregon Bach Festival (OBF). The festival attracts distinguished musicians from around the world for two exciting weeks of orchestral and choral performances, lectures and community events in a true powerhouse of a production. An international audience of over 15,000 people flock to Eugene for the festival, which has grown to include over 50 musical events each year. Many performances are staged at the Hult Center for the Performing Arts and Beall and Berwick Halls at the University of Oregon.
The 2019 lineup for the Oregon Bach Festival will be released in mid-January. Audiences can expect the year's festival to include works from Bach, Mozart and Berlioz, a collaboration with an international dance academy and a concert blending jazz with the lush landscape of Oregon. Returning performers include Berwick Academy, Stangeland Family Youth Choral Academy and the Organ Institute along with organist Paul Jacobs.
