Firebird Print Auction

    The Oregon East Symphony is creating a new teaching position that will start in July 2018. This position will strengthen and expand the capacity of our education programing by assuming conducting duties for our A Sharps preparatory orchestra and Raising the Bar mentoring program, teaching in our beginning strings after school program Symphony Strings and our annual Summer Strings music camp, create new pilot programming, and be an additional private instructor in the community.
    As a fundraising strategy for this new teaching position we are auctioning off a print of "Firebird", a painting by Hiroko Cannon commissioned after a fire in 2008 decimated the Symphony office. Although we will be saddened to see it go the funds received will be put towards breathing new life into our education programing. Bidding on "Firebird" starts at $100 and will increase in $25 increments. Bidding will close at midnight on Friday, April 20th with "Firebird" awarded to the winner at our Season Finale concert the following evening. If you would like to place a bid on this beautiful piece of Oregon East Symphony history you may do so by calling (541-276-0320) or emailing the Symphony office (
Current bid: $1050 (as of 2/23/18)

Our mission is:
To operate, support, and maintain a symphony orchestra, ensembles, chorale, and youth classical music program to enhance the cultural wealth of the region through education and performance.”
