The UofO Bach Festival is no longer centered on the University campus. Far from it's humble beginnings in Beall Hall, this is a highly regarded program that is now conducted in the Hult Center for Performing Arts in downtown Eugene.
For over 30 years, conductor Helmuth Rilling has been the core of the Bach Festival. His support has made the Festival a highlighted national event that brings together music lovers, students and artists. Workshops, studio instruction and recitals fill the Bach Festival week and draw many visitors from out of town.
This is an event that is broadcast widely, including being presented on the BBC and US public radio. Recordings of the festival events are available as CDs through such mainstream outlets as BMG music and Amazon.com.
