What Makes the Eugene Symphony Work (City Club of Eugene)
Friday, September 20, 2013, from 12:00 to 1:30 pm

What Makes The Eugene Symphony Work?

Guest Speaker: Scott Freck, Executive Director, Eugene Symphony Association

Last year, City Club hosted a reunion of the people whose persistent efforts resulted in creation of the Hult Center for the Performing Arts. Many of those interviewed that day remembered a particular point of skepticism: "Everyone said Eugene wasn't big enough for a symphony. Well, we proved them wrong."
How usual is it for a city the size of Eugene to have its own symphony? Once we decided to create one, how did the organizers make sure it was good? Given this city’s animated participation in musical events of every type, how does the planning process accommodate such diversity in taste? How do city leaders balance the need to pay the bills that come with operating a place like the Hult Center with other social and economic factors important to a community? For example, are the cultural resources of the symphony available to all young people, even those in families struggling with finances? How is programming for the Symphony coordinated with other performance events in the community to reflect the needs and tastes of the marketplace?

This week’s program coordinator, Mary Leighton, will interview Scott Freck about those and other issues related to managing the Eugene Symphony. Her questions emerge from her rookie year as a Symphony member. Following their conversation, the floor will open for questions from those attending the City Club Friday Forum.
