News Arts Magazine Features OBF

  • May 15, 2007
The Oregon Bach Festival was featured in the premiere issue of Encore Magazine created by The Register-Guard. Encore Magazine is published twice a year to highlight the performing and visual arts in Lane County. T The OBF was featured in many different ways throughout the magazine's first issue, including two full page advertisements, an article highlighting some of the major events at the 2007 festival, and photos of prominent performers Helmuth Rilling, violinist Midori, and The 5 Browns. Featured in the "Change of Tune"? article, Royce Saltzman talks about his decision to hand over the reigns of the Oregon Bach Festival to John Evans. Saltzman has taken the Festival from two workshops and two concerts in 1970 to more than 45 concerts, recitals, lectures, and master classes. With the new title of Executive Director Emeritus, Saltzman will still be active in the Festival, continuing to build the endowment that bears his name. The second issue of Encore is set for a September 14, 2007 publishing date to celebrate 25 years of world-class entertainment at The Hult Center for the Performing Arts.
