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.
For our 75th Festival – June 10 to 13, 2021 – composer and conductor John Adams, takes the helm as music director.
Every gift matters. You sustain the Festival and the promise of what’s to come.
The 2021 Festival, Ojai‘s 75th Anniversary, celebrates today’s most exciting young composers and performers. We anticipate gathering with you this June to relish John Adams’ future-facing program. Your donations also go deep into the Ojai community – allowing the Festival to reach children through the BRAVO education program – kids who carry the heavy weight of our collective future. We are beyond grateful to each and every person who comprises our Festival Family.
