The late Jon Sutton was a renowned Eugene composer and musician, whose creative talents extended into tapestries, silk-screen printing, oil and watercolor—even furniture design and photography of the Korean War. His legacy is being celebrated with a concert on April 7th by Eugene Vocal Arts and Eugene Concert Orchestra, and with honored preservation of his works by the UO Libraries Special Collections and University Archives. KLCC's Eric Alan discusses his legacy with Diane Retallack, artistic & executive director of Eugene Vocal Arts Ensemble--a long-time friend and collaborator of Jon Sutton's.
