EUGENE, Ore. — A nearly 50-year music career is nearly over.
Now it’s time for the Eugene Symphony to say goodbye to its only remaining founding member.
Amy Jo Butler is a second violinist with the Eugene Symphony and will retire at the end of May.
She’s played with the Symphony for 48 years and 21 teaching education programs. She also served on the board and donated countless hours fundraising to help make the symphony what it is today.
“I would like to thank of all of the community and patron for their support and want them to know how much we enjoy their reception and their enjoyment,” said second violinist Amy Jo Butler.
