Artist Residencies

The Artist Residency program leverages the presence of internationally renowned artists visiting Eugene to provide unique professional and artistic development opportunities for Symphony musicians, undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Oregon and Lane Community College, the Eugene-Springfield Youth Orchestras, and participants in other school- and community-based music education programs.

Most recently, the Eugene Symphony hosted world-renowned classical guitarist Sharon Isbin and composer Christopher Rouse for a week-long residency featuring school visits, master classes for local guitarists and composers, public performances, and film screenings. This residency was generously sponsored by the Boekelheide Foundation and the Nils and Jewel Hult Endowment – Arts Foundation of Western Oregon Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation.
