Every year open-minded audiences gather in the idyllic Ojai Valley to experience a four-day curated music festival – the only one of its kind. Each Festival’s narrative thread is guided by a different music director, who offers a wildly distinctive style and point of view. These annual directors are more than conductors, soloists, or musicians. They are musical thinkers who approach their craft with creativity and responsibility to the music of today.
For our 74th Festival, June 11 to 14, 2020, composer and conductor Matthias Pintscher, takes the helm as music director.
