Eugene Symphony's season of storytelling comes to a close with Maurice Ravel’s balletic masterpiece Daphnis et Chloe. It combines a dramatic narrative sweep with jaw-dropping Impressionist details, and will bring you to the edge of your Silva Concert Hall seat. Eugene native Carey Bell, now Principal Clarinet of the famed San Francisco Symphony, returns home to play Aaron Copland’s lyrical and lively Concerto, originally written for jazz legend Benny Goodman. American powerhouse Jessie Montgomery’s opening work draws on big-band jazz, R&B, and funk to weave a sonic tapestry.
The Eugene Symphony is an orchestra whose mission is enriching lives through the power of music. Since 1982, the orchestra has taken up residence in the Hult Center of the Performing Arts, a performing arts venue and a cornerstone in downtown Eugene's arts and culture district.
