The Road Scholar Program for the Oregon Bach Festival
Road Scholar is the new name for the programs developed and offered by Elderhostel, Inc., the not-for-profit world leader in lifelong learning and educational travel since 1975. Their programs offer in-depth and behind-the-scenes learning experiences for almost every interest and ability.
The University of Oregon is extremely proud to host the Road Scholar Program for the Oregon Bach Festival. UO Academic Extension, working in cooperation with Elderhostel, Inc. and the Oregon Bach Festival, began offering the program in the 1980s. The Oregon Bach Festival Road Scholar Program will offer two, one-week sessions for 2013. The first session runs June 27 to July 3, during the first week of this prestigious seventeen-day event. The second session begins July 9 and ends July 15 with the final performance of Helmuth Rilling's career. As part of the program, tickets are included for five OBF concert events. Festival schedule and special order forms for additional concert tickets at special discounts will be available beginning April 1.
Overview and Highlights
The Oregon Bach Festival brings together musicians from around the world, under the direction of Helmuth Rilling, in celebration of the artistic legacy of Johann Sebastian Bach. The OBF includes masterworks from the Baroque era to present, even the occasional world premiere. The OBF Road Scholar Program blends concerts with classes and lectures by University of Oregon faculty and local independent scholars, and the Oregon Bach Festival's academic programming.
