Elementary Youth Concert
Tuesday, November 10, 2015
On Tuesday, November 10, the Eugene Symphony presented an elementary concert to celebrate the diversity found in the one universal language... music. Students experienced the sounds, movements, and languages of cultures from around the world with special guests Trio Voronezh, Lo Nuestro, West African Cultural Arts Institute, Eugene Flamenco Arts, CABA Fan Dance, and Eugene Ballet Academy.
The Eugene Symphony Youth Concerts are generously supported by:
Fire & Water
Tan Dun's Water Concerto immerses percussion instruments in lighted bowls of water to create a feast for the eye and the ear, and Stravinsky's epic ballet score weaves a tale of love's triumph over tyranny, with the help of a mythical creature.

In the Fall 2015 issue of The League of American Orchestras Symphony magazine, Eugene Symphony’s Executive Director Scott Freck shares his perspective on new music.
