Orchestra Next Fundraiser 2019

Support live music at the ballet and musical mentorship throughout the year!

Orchestra Next, resident orchestra with the Eugene Ballet Company, provides mentorship to more than 100 aspiring musicians every year from some of the most reputable professional musicians in the Pacific Northwest. ON's model is simple: provide live music for the ballet, place students next to professionals, pay everyone, keep administrative costs low, cultivate excellence, and have fun. 

Last year, Orchestra Next brought live music to the Eugene Ballet - for Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet and Stravinsky's The Firebird - and held the innagural SAIL ON Recording Camp for high schoolers. It's no wonder that the Register Guard said "Orchestra Next is a great example of doing more with less." We are creative, collaborative, innovative, and we play our hearts out!

Orchestra Next's 2019/20 Season includes: 

  • Swan Lake (played live for the first time in Eugene Ballet's history!
  • The Nutcracker 
  • World Premiere of Pius Cheung's Heaven and Earth

All donations are tax-deductible and help support live music at the ballet AND the mentorship and training of musicians in our area.
