The JSMA and Eugene Symphony Association celebrate an innovative collaboration with four Oregon visual artists in response to Paul Hindemith (1895-1963)’s orchestral masterpiece Symphonic Metamorphosis on Themes of Weber. Over the past year, while working closely with Eugene Symphony Music Director and Conductor Francesco Lecce-Chong, Mika Aono, Anna Fidler, Andrew Myers, and Julia Oldham created new works in printmaking, painting, drawing, and animation. Each commissioned artist was inspired by the virtuosity, imagination, experimentation, and humor inherent in Hindemith’s most popular work. At a future date, the Eugene Symphony’s “Beethoven’s Fifth” performance at the Hult Center for the Performing Arts will explore how music and art bring us closer together with a program that includes Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis accompanied by four corresponding videos of the artists’ works (created by JSMA design services manager Mike Bragg and featured artist Julia Oldham to make visible the stages of creation in each project). Concert details will be made available at eugenesymphony.org.
