Quantcast

For the first time in its history, Oregon Bach Festival will have a building to call its own. Catalyzed by lead capital gifts from Andrew & Phyllis Berwick and Donald & Willie Tykeson, OBF has raised more than $8.2 million toward a $9 million building project. The 10,000 square foot building will be located on the University of Oregon campus next to the School of Music and Dance (SOMD) on 18th Avenue.

The building will be a homecoming in a sense, recognizing OBF’s roots as a conducting master class and lecture series founded within the SOMD. The new building will provide much-needed rehearsal space as well as a permanent home for OBF offices.

Kierkegaard Associates of Chicago will manage the acoustical design to create a premier rehearsal, performance, and recording space. The flexible rehearsal hall/performance space can accommodate up to 200 seats, depending on the scale of performance.  In addition, the building will grant the Festival visibility on a busy street, opportunities for community events, and a centralized hub for Festival activities.

A campaign for naming opportunities will be rolled out in the coming months, with giving opportunities available at a variety of levels. Please join us in extending our appreciation to the Berwicks and Tykesons for their generous gifts, and we invite you to consider making a contribution to this once-in-an-organization’s lifetime opportunity!
