The Oregon Bach Festival - June 23 - July 10
Oregon Bach Festival (OBF) has presented the masterworks of J.S. Bach to audiences in Eugene, Portland, and throughout the State of Oregon for nearly five decades. The annual event began as a collaboration between German Conductor and Organist, Helmuth Rilling and former Associate Dean of the University of Oregon School Of Music, Royce Saltzman. OBF is now an international festival of worldwide repute, led by Maestro Matthew Halls. In addition to traditional choral-orchestral masterworks, the festival also presents internationally renowned guest artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Midori, Pink Martini and Joshua Bell, and offers educational opportunities, children and family programing, and free community events.
