"To honor orchestra members Kjersten Oquist and Angela Svendsen, the symphony will perform its regularly scheduled concert Thursday evening."
The Eugene Symphony, and Eugene as a whole, lost 2 members Sunday, in a terrible car accident that I won’t discuss yet because it makes me quake with rage. This week’s concert, with special guest Sir James Galway, is continuing as scheduled, and I’m glad they made the decision to carry on.
- Giancarlo Guerrero, Conductor
- Sir James Galway, Flute
- Lady Jeanne Galway, Flute
- Mozart: Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
- Mozart: Flute Concerto No. 2
- J. Strauss: Tales from the Vienna Woods
- Cimarosa: Concerto for Two Flutes
Kjersten and Angela, Jodie and I, and Eugene’s music community and all of Eugene, honor you tonight. Rest in peace.
