Cascadia Composers presents “Perceptions of Sound” on Jan 30, 2016

On Saturday, January 30th, 2016 at 7:30 p.m., Cascadia Composers proudly presents “Perceptions of Sound,” a Cascadia and Friends production. Tickets will be available at the door for $20 (general admission), $10 (seniors and working artists) and $5 (students). The event will take place at First Christian Church, 1166 Oak St. Eugene, Oregon 97401. 

CASCADIA COMPOSERS is a non‐profit membership chapter of NACUSA (National Association of Composers USA) based in Portland Oregon and dedicated to the promotion and support of regional composers. Cascadia has produced concerts, workshops, and presentations promoting new classical music by Northwest composers for eight years.

This third Eugene Cascadia Composers concert entitled “Perceptions of Sound” will challenge the ears with a variety of works that take advantage of the unique acoustic properties of the First Christian Church’s parabolic dome.  Many pieces will be “in the dark” for the listener to immerse themselves in sound, sometimes from various corners of the space. Dance, video, electro acoustic and other multimedia collaborative works will be on the program. 

The program will showcase pianist Alexander Schwarzkof, soprano Nancy Wood and percussionist Todd Bills among many Eugene musicians.  Composers represented include Eugene’s Paul Safar and Portland ‘s Daniel Brugh, Jeff Winslow and Lisa March. Jennifer Wright will electrify us with amplified harpsichord and John Beredzen will usher in the concert with his one of a kind instrument “the Robohorn.” 

Get ready for this new genre bending multi media experience set in the unique space of First Christian Church in Eugene.

  1. I've been to events at other places, but this was my first time in here. Great place. Food at Chicago venues was good and seating was very comfortable. Also, very good view from where I sat. This is such a cool venue and the atmosphere was equally amazing.
