Oregon Bach Fest preview with Trio Voronezh

4th May 10 (Tue) 1 comment

The good music is matched by the good deals at the University of Oregon when the Oregon Bach Festival and the Duck Store present a season preview party Thursday, May 13 from 5:30 to 7 pm. On tap are ticket discounts, book discounts, beer, wine, and other refreshments, and a live performance by Trio Voronezh.

Conservatory trained in their native Russia, the members of Trio Voronezh played for money on the streets of Europe until discovered by a friend of the Oregon Bach Festival. Playing classical favorites on Russian folk instruments with showmanship and virtuosity, they made their American debut at the festival in 1996. After several return tours they became U.S. citizens, with Eugene as their home base for recording and touring.

During the OBF preview event participants can get vouchers for ticket discounts of up to 20% for selected concerts, and get discounts for 20% off general books in the Duckstore, an OBF sponsor. OBF staff members will be present to answer questions and assist with ticket orders online at the event.

The party takes place in the “Literary Duck” on the second floor of the Duck Store building at 13th and Kincaid in Eugene. Free refreshments include beer from Eugene City Brewery, wine, soft drinks and snacks.

The UO’s Oregon Bach Festival takes place June 25 through July 11 in Eugene, Bend and Portland. Tickets for the Festival go on sale over the counter at Eugene’s Hult Center ticket office on May 11. For complete schedule and ticket information call (541) 682-5000 or click
