Symphony Connect is a new chamber music initiative that features diverse programming in a variety of venues beyond the concert hall, such as bars and restaurants, community hubs, hospitals, and other locations in Eugene, Springfield, and throughout the southern Willamette Valley.
Symphony Connect brings the power of music to you.
On Wednesday, August 17 from 6:30-8:00 pm, a brass quintet of Symphony musicians presented a free outdoor performance at Willamalane's "Sounds Like Summer" Concert Series at Island Park featuring repertoire that is "poppish, jazzy, light classical, brassy and fun!"
Partnering with Human Services
This fall, Symphony Connect will partner with four organizations - Laurel Hill Center, Cornerstone Community Housing, Saint Vincent de Paul, and Riverfront School - to present interactive performances and activities designed with guidance from music therapist Danielle Oar to build community and promote wellness through music.
