From the City Club of Eugene:

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

The Willamette Valley’s musical community lost one of its most dedicated souls, when Jeff Eaton passed away from cancer in late January. He had three tenures with the Oregon Mozart Players, including two as executive director and one as general manager. As a cellist, he performed with the Eugene Symphony, the Eugene Opera and the Oregon Bach Festival, among others.
