About Orchestra Next

Orchestra Next is a training orchestra and the resident orchestra with the Eugene Ballet Company.  Now in its 8th season, Orchestra Next has performed many productions with the Eugene Ballet, performed live national anthems for the World Indoor Track & Field Championships medal ceremonies, performed for Cirque Musica, and collaborated with the Eugene Concert Choir, Soromundi Lesbian Choir of Eugene, and UO Theatre Department. Orchestra Next has managed to capture the hearts and minds of the region by remixing the orchestral model – providing live music for staged productions and much-needed experience for aspiring professional musicians. Resurrecting the tradition of the mentor-apprentice relationship, Orchestra Next combines Eugene’s creative and vibrant professionals with the region’s most talented protégés. Orchestra Next’s debut recording – Kenji Bunch’s The Snow Queen – was released on Innova Recordings.
