bach festival picEUGENE, Ore. — The sounds of classical music are about to fill the air around Eugene and the rest of the state.

It’s all part of the Oregon Bach Festival.

Performers rehearsed Tuesday afternoon for Monteverdi Vespers, which opens the concert series on Thursday night.

The festival includes both a chorus and orchestra, which organizers say will be a treat for not just the ears, but also the eyes.

“I think a lot of people might think oh, it’s just like going to they symphony which is great, but its focus is very different. Bach Festival has a very different feel, different overall experience and you’ll be blown away,” said Liz Gill, Oregon Bach Festival spokesperson.

The festival kicks off Thursday night at the Silva Concert Hall. Tickets are still available.
