HomeNut

Orchestra Next engaged its professionals, fellows, and University of Oregon SAIL ON high school students to produce sections of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker for the Eugene Ballet from April through October of 2020 during the pandemic. Musicians from Oregon, across the U.S. and as far away as Puerto Rico recorded their parts for several movements from their homes, with the results including the Overture in the virtual Nutcracker performance with the Eugene Ballet (experienceballet.com). Learn more about this project at Orchestra Next’s podcast…and the Band Played ON – The HomeNut Episode.
