Steve Prefontaine – Eugene Symphony

As the world track and field championships come to Eugene, the Eugene Symphony honors one of Oregon’s greatest champions, Steve Prefontaine. Before his untimely death in 1975, he set 14 American records in distance running, and legends of his accomplishments still resonate across the world today. Featuring original music by Oregon’s best-known composer, David Schiff, this stirring multi-media project will be enhanced with imagery projected on a screen above the stage and punctuated with spoken accounts of Steve’s life performed by Oregon Contemporary Theatre actors.

Rolling World Premiere – “Alabaster” by Audrey Cefaly

Join Oregon Contemporary Theatre for 7:30 pm and 2 pm matinee performances of “Alabaster.” It is also available to stream.
