Welcome to our 2019-2020 Season!
We’ll be taking you to New Worlds with music by Reena Esmail and Kevin Puts on our opening night concert (October 12, 2019), and are excited to collaborate with local Delgani String Quartet as guest artists. We’re also proud to be one of the co-commissioning ensembles for Michael Torke’s Sky, which will be performed by brilliant violin virtuoso Tessa Lark on our Beethoven and Bluegrass concert (March 28, 2020).
Of course, we’re also featuring the traditions that have made us beloved in this community, including our annual Candlelight Concert, which features our own musicians as soloists illuminated by the soft glow of candlelight in Eugene’s historic First Christian Church (December 6 & 7, 2019). A Mozart Paradise (February 8, 2020) celebrates our namesake composer, and welcomes back longtime friend of OMP, pianist Anton Nel. Though a newer tradition, our Young Soloist Competition is no less beloved, and you’ll get to hear these rising stars Taking Flight on our season finale concert (May 9, 2020).

“The experience is different here”
Our concert experience is a unique, up-close-and-personal approach to classical music. Beall Hall’s size allows our audience members to feel close to the music being performed. Being a chamber orchestra, each of our musicians (usually around 35 local musicians on stage) can be heard clearly. Post-concert receptions, open to all audience members, give our concertgoers an opportunity to connect and chat with our musicians, Maestro Kuo, and the world-class artists that perform with us. Join us this season for an exciting adventure!
