Birds of a Feather
Bach: Brandenburg Concerto No. 3
Jennifer Higdon: On a Wire
Mozart: Six German Dances
Bernstein: Fancy Free
The multi-Grammy-winning ensemble Eighth Blackbird joins the Eugene Symphony with a concerto written especially for them by Jennifer Higdon, one of today’s most vital composers. An early work that helped launch his career, Bernstein’s ballet Fancy Free concludes our exploration honoring his 100th anniversary. Full of the sounds of street-corner jazz, bustling cafes, and crowded sidewalks, it’s a beautiful ode to his home of New York City.
