Our 50th anniversary was special in so many ways, not the least of which was commissioning and performing five new pieces for our audiences. We felt this unprecedented project deserved special documentation. RVS partnered with Laney D’Aquino of Illustrated Sandwich Productions to create a short documentary of each of our commissioning projects. This documentary project centers on footage of rehearsals as well as in-depth interviews with the composers and performers. We documented the two premieres from last season as well, and plan to continue this partnership into the next season and beyond. The finished documentaries can be viewed on our YouTube channel.

The Rogue Valley Symphony’s commission of five new works for its 50th anniversary season was made possible by a Creative Heights Award from the Fred W. Fields Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation.
