Orchestra Next 2023/24

The 12th Season

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 performed 7 shows of The Nutcracker, world-premiere productions of Suzanne Haag's Petrushka and Toni Pimble's The Little Mermaid, and had the great honor of performing with Danceability on a production called Next Movement. 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 2023/24 Season includes: 

  • The Snow Queen - Kenji Bunch
  • Nutcracker
  • Gatsby - Wynton Marsalis
  • World Premiere of Peter Pan - Kenji Bunch

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