The Ojai Music Festival represents an ideal of adventurous, open-minded and open-hearted programming in the most beautiful and welcoming of settings, with audiences and artists to match its aspirations. As its 75th anniversary approaches, the Festival remains a hallmark for groundbreaking musical experiences with a narrative thread guided by a different music director. These annual directors are more than conductors, composers, soloists, or musicians. They are musical thinkers who approach their craft with creativity and responsibility to the present day.
Every gift matters. You sustain the Festival and the promise of what’s to come.
Donations support creative possibilities. As 2021 Music Director John Adams shared, “I am eager to introduce to our audiences a new generation of composers and performers who give a glimpse of what the future of creativity in music will be.”
Together we celebrate the Festival’s 75th Anniversary beginning in June with events in Ojai and throughout Southern California as well as newly produced online programs, all culminating with the in-person Festival in OJai September 16-19, 2021
