Musician Moments

While they can't play together in the concert hall, Eugene Symphony orchestra musicians continue to make music. We'll showcase performances from our orchestra musicians right here. Check back for updates!


A musical moment brought to you by horn player Lydia Van Dreel with Jean-Michel Damase's Berceuse Op.19, for French Horn and Piano.

Lydia says, "the music is really calming, ethereal — perfect for soothing anyone who feels stressed out."

Violinist Alice Blankenship made a beautiful tribute to her neighbors and neighborhood with the Siciliana and Allegro from Telemann's Fantasia in B minor for solo violin, played on her baroque violin.

Of this project, Alice says, "my hope was to convey a determination for optimism."

Clarinet player Isaac Beu shared a behind-the-scenes look at his home practice with one of his favorite etudes. Listen for the vocal accompaniment from his pup, Delilah.

ESA violinist Julia Frantz joined forces with guitarist John Fair to record this delightful performance!

Julia says this is one of her "favorite fiddle tunes...'Whiskey Before Breakfast' (also an apt title for the current times). Huge thank you to John for sharing his guitar talent and putting this together!"
