With Music Director Jeremy Denk, the 68th Ojai Music Festival was a record breaking year marked by sold out performances, the world premiere of the comic opera, The Classical Style: An Opera (of Sorts), a substantial increase in impact thanks to the residency of American Public Media’s Fred Child, and enhanced live video streaming, which has already attracted over 7,000 views from 43 countries.
This is just the beginning. The Festival’s creative spirit and commitment to nurturing the musicians of today is stronger than ever. Led by Music Director Steven Schick, the 2015 Ojai Music Festival will include works by 19 living composers. With future Music Directors, Peter Sellars in 2016 and Esa-Pekka Salonen in 2017, Steven will open the door to 70 more years of adventurous programming.
