Oregon Bach Festival launches orchestral training and touring programme
In summer 2015 the Oregon Bach Festival will launch the Berwick Academy, its first orchestral training and touring programme, after receiving a record $7.25 million gift from Phyllis and Andrew Berwick.
Open to young professional musicians, it aims to focus on historically informed performance between the 17th-19th Centuries. The course is spread over a three week period and includes a six concert tour in venues across Eugene, Florence and Portland. Lead by Artistic Director, Matthew Halls, he will also be joined by Masaaki Suzuki, Monica Huggett and Robert Levin.
