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.
Bach and Scarlatti
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!
