Remembrances World Premiere

Friday, April 8, 2016 at 7:30 pm
Sunday, April 10, 2016 at 2:30 pm
Beall Concert Hall, U of O

Memory loss causes a heart-wrenching transition from a former self to a changed individual. Remembrances will give voice to the challenges, frustrations, despair, hopes, courage, determination, acceptance, and moments of light and tenderness for those afflicted as well as those who care for and accompany them on this journey. Experience this powerful original commission by nationally-recognized Oregon composer Joan Szymko. The Eugene Vocal Arts with Eugene Concert Orchestra will present the world premiere in spring of 2016.

This project is made possible by a $125,000 grant from the Fred W. Fields Fund Creative Heights Initiative of the Oregon Community Foundation
