Music has the power to change lives for the better, says Holly Spencer, executive director of the Eugene-Springfield Youth Orchestras (ESYO). “When you go to a performance or even a class or rehearsal, that’s when you see what music is doing for these kids,” Spencer says. The music groups are gearing up for their spring concerts May 24-26. In a time when children in public school have fewer opportunities to participate in the arts, ESYO gives students a chance to engage musically. ESYO consists of several programs, including the Eugene-Springfield Youth Symphony, the Junior Orchestra and the Little Symphony. At the youth concerts, “you can close your eyes and have an evening of symphony music; it’s not just a kids concert,” Spencer says. ESYO recently announced that David Jacobs, director of orchestral studies at the UO, has taken a position as the new conductor of the Eugene-Springfield Youth Symphony — check out his conducting skills at the symphony’s spring concert May 26.

The ESYO Little Symphony & String Academy 2 play 7:30pm Tuesday, May 24; the ESYO Junior Orchestra plays 7:30pm Wednesday, May 25; the Eugene Springfield Youth Symphony plays 7:30pm Thursday, May 26; all concerts take place at South Eugene High School, 400 E. 19th Ave. $10 adults, $5 students and seniors; see esyorchestras.org for tickets.

Bright costumes, alter egos, larger-than-life personalities, mysterious origin stories, blood feuds, epic battles: the connection between comic books and hip hop is plain to see, but the relationship between the two counter cultures runs mad deep. To explore the sibling artforms’ tangled histories and cultural influences and impacts, the UO has organized a two-part program, titled Hip Hop and Comics: Cultures Combining, that brings together legendary visual artists, writers, rap stars and producers. To hash out the finer points of comic book/hip hop cross-pollination, graffiti artist Angelina Villalobos and comic creators Eric Orr and Sloane Leong will be joined for an all-star panel discussion, featuring Jurassic 5’s Chali 2na, and the Beastie Boys’ Mix Master Mike, Friday at UO’s Straub Hall. The party then moves to the Level Up Arcade where Chali 2na and Mix Master Mike will perform together while Eric Orr and Sloane Leong make live art.

Hip Hop & Comics: Cultures Combining panel discussion begins 2pm Friday, May 20, at the UO’s Straub Hall. The after party gets going at 6pm at the Level Up Arcade, 129 Oak St.; both all-ages events are FREE.

Fresh from their appearance at the Varsity Vocals International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) finals in New York City, Divisi, the UO’s premier women’s a cappella group, returns home with a performance this weekend, titled 15 Years of Divisi. “Being an ICCA finalist group is something that we have all dreamed of since we began preparing for this competition in August,” says Divisi’s Sam Westmoreland. Divisi co-founder Evynne Hollens adds: “The girls did not place [at ICCA], but certainly did us proud. And being the only all-female group in the competition was impressive enough!” The reunion concert features performers from across the group’s 15-year history, including original founding members. “Divisi has a long history of representing strong women and having fun while making music with friends,” Westmoreland says. “We are unbelievably honored to carry on that legacy and to add to Divisi’s tradition of female empowerment.” 

Women’s a capella group Divisi performs 7pm Saturday, May 14, at the First Christian Church, 1166 Oak St.; $5-$8.

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!

At the top of the message, include briefly and without extra description:
