Oregon Bach Festival

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

We had a great sold-out performance tonight at the Oregon Bach Festival.  Our stay in Eugene has been fantastic and we’d like to thank John Evans, Michael Anderson and the OBF staff for bringing us to their amazing festival.  We’d also like to thank the great theater and sound crew at the Hult Center for making our concert go so smoothly.  Also a huge thank you goes our to our lighting designer Eileen Cooley for all of her artistry and work.  And last but definitely not least thank you to the members of Portland Taiko who helped us pack up and load out!

Tomorrow we head down to Ashland for a performance at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Green Show.  More later!

obf1We are currently in the beautiful city of Eugene OR for the Oregon Bach Festival.  Yesterday we performed at the opening of On the Road: Two Visions of the Tokaido at the University of Oregon’s Jordon Schnitzer Museum.  We spent today in the theater preparing for tomorrow’s concert and got a nice write up in the Eugene Register-Guard.

Tonight we’re going to watch Helmuth Rilling conduct a performance of Joseph Haydn’s The Creation at the Oregon Bach Festival.  Should be great concert!

This June we’re very excited to be performing in Eugene, OR at the Oregon Bach Festival!

Since 1970, the Oregon Bach Festival celebrates the music and legacy of J.S. Bach in an unequaled environment of performance, discovery, and community, in the refreshing early summer of the Pacific Northwest. Perhaps the most expansive and critically acclaimed platform for Bach’s music in America, the Festival forges connections between people through a love of great music.

I’m still not sure quite how we were picked to be a part of the OBF but it’ll be an absolute honor to be among the amazing artists at this year’s festival!

On Thursday June 25th, we’ll be performing at 6:00pm at the Jordon Schnitzer Museum of Art for the public reception of the World Harmony Project.

On Saturday June 27th we have a kids show “Taiko Together” at 11:00am and a full concert at 7:30pm at the Soreng Concert Hall.
