Eugene Symphony Mission and History
Now in its 51st season, the Eugene Symphony is recognized as a cornerstone of the performing arts in Oregon’s southern Willamette Valley. Under the leadership of Music Director and Conductor Danail Rachev, the Eugene Symphony pursues its mission of enriching lives through the power of music by presenting annual classical, pops and community engagement performances, regularly commissioning and premiering new American works, and disseminating its performances via radio broadcasts and recordings.
As a guiding principle, the Eugene Symphony is committed to serving, educating and developing the widest possible regional audience through its programs. More than 26,000 people now attend Eugene Symphony’s classical, family and special performances each year.
