The Master Class is entering its 48th year as one of the premiere conducting academies in the US. Over 1,000 conductors, musicians, and lovers of music have come to Eugene to study the art of conducting and the music of Bach. Program director Dr. Edward Maclary and Artistic Director Matthew Halls lead the class of participants and auditors in demonstrations and discussions of the featured repertoire plus sessions in technique and score study, while preparing the selected participants to lead the OBF Chorus & Orchestra in performances of the Discovery Series lecture concerts.

The Stangeland Family Youth Choral Academy celebrates its 20th anniversary of making great music with accomplished high school singers from all over the world. Dr. Anton Armstrong leads rehearsals and performances during a 10-day academy that is considered by many to be life-changing. 

The OBF Organ Institute, directed by Grammy-award winning organist Paul Jacobs, offers organists the opportunity to immerse themselves in the music of Bach and explore technique and interpretation through specialized seminars, master classes, and performance.

Deadlines are coming soon. Don't miss your opportunity to audition for these acclaimed programs!
