Orchestra Next Breathes New Life Into The Snow Queen

By Steve Fyffe

One of the largest orchestral commissions in Oregon history is about to be performed by a unique chamber orchestra that was created to offer students the rare opportunity to be mentored and perform alongside professional musicians and faculty members from the University of Oregon School of Music and Dance.

It’s a collaboration between Orchestra Next and The Eugene Ballet, along with Portland-based composer Kenji Bunch, on a reimagining of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale "The Snow Queen.”
