The Organization

Now in its 58th season, Eugene Symphony is widely recognized as a cornerstone of the performing arts in Oregon’s southern Willamette Valley. Under the leadership of Music Director & Conductor Francesco Lecce-Chong and Executive Director Dave Moss, the Eugene Symphony pursues its mission of enriching lives through the power of music by presenting annual classical, summer, and community engagement performances, commissioning and premiering new American works, and distributing its performances via radio broadcasts.

Guided by its Long-Range Plan which was recently updated in 2022, Eugene Symphony serves, educates, and develops the widest possible regional audience through its programs. Approximately 25,000 community members attend Eugene Symphony’s classical, family, and special performances each year. An additional 25,000 children, adults, and seniors take part in annual education and community engagement initiatives, including family and youth concerts, in-school ensemble performances, subsidized concert tickets, artist residencies, and pre-concert lectures. Through its annual broadcast series on classical radio KWAX, Eugene Symphony brings its full season of classical concerts to 45,000 local and worldwide listeners each month, and recently created a limited-edition radio series on KLCC-FM, the local NPR affiliate.

Eugene Symphony is a professional orchestra operating under a collective bargaining agreement.
