The Candlelight Baroque Concert Saturday night was exquisite! It’s become a local holiday tradition and listening to the Oregon Mozart Players perform in a small candlelight atmosphere is uplifting.

The ensemble performed selections from Bach and Scarlatti with talented soloists including Eugene soprano Laura Decher Wayte, principal trumpet Dave Bender, and oboist Cheryl Denice.

A special Dowd Harpsichord was part of the performance, and since the concert is held at the First Christian Church several pieces featured their pipe organ.

We’re lucky to have a holiday season filled with so much special music. Last Saturday evening Pink Martini performed at the Hult Center and the annual Nutcracker ballet this weekend was fantastic – smile!
