Oregon Bach Festival

For 49 years, the Oregon Bach Festival has been a staple of summers in Eugene, bringing performances from internationally renowned musicians. On July 5th, the festival will bring something new to the Hult Center.

They’re now expanding their local reach through teacher trainings co-sponsored by the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, other classes and events. Founder Alito Alessi speaks with Eric Alan about how the languages of dance and community expand through diversity.
