EUGENE, Ore. — Sounds of a classic composer filled the Hult Center Monday night as musicians prepped for the Oregon Bach Festival.
Tuesday is the big Mozart performance. Directors say in his last testament of music, Mozart combined passages from previous composers with intense drama and thrilling vocal quartets.
“This is a special way to experience choral music, and it’s fantastic what the festival is doing to keep this tradition alive and keep it vital and keep it vibrant and living,” said tenor Nicholas Phan.
“Without sounding cheesey, there’s a kind of magic that happens at this festival, and I think that’s a combination of the people who work here, the people who play, the people who are behind the scenes, all the volunteers. I think it’s such a community,” said soprano Tamara Wilson.
Rilling Conducts Mozart starts at 7:30 p.m.
