Brahms: Tragic Overture

Angélica Negrón: Symphony No. 1

Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto

Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s thrilling Violin Concerto has it all — sweeping melodies, virtuosic fireworks, and a heart-warming canzonetta that will fill your soul. We open with Johannes Brahms’s contemplative overture and then experience the world premiere of Puerto Rican-born composer Angélica Negrón’s first-ever symphony.


In accordance with Oregon state mandates being lifted, beginning March 12, 2022, the Hult Center for the Performing Arts and Eugene Symphony will no longer require mandatory face masks or proof of vaccination or negative COVID tests for patrons.

The health and safety of Eugene Symphony audience members, musicians, and staff members has been and will always be our top priority. We strongly welcome and encourage patrons who wish to continue wearing masks while attending performances to do so. We want all of our attendees to feel comfortable and accepted in your choice. You take care of you, we'll take care of the music and ensuring that your experience attending a Eugene Symphony concert remains exceptional.

We also want to share that, due to the nature of our orchestra members’ work, which calls for extended hours of rehearsal in close proximity to each other in the days leading up to the performance, the musicians will continue to be masked as they have been throughout the 2021/22 season. We anticipate that we will revisit this issue prior to each performance week, and will keep you informed of any changes as they happen.

For the most up to date health and safety protocols visit the Hult Center website — or feel free to call the Hult Center Ticket Office at 541-682-5000 Tuesday to Friday from 12:00 to 5:00 pm.
