We gather in Ojai each year to learn and to experience profound joy.

Over four exciting days, we experience more concerts than an average symphony season. 
You perform the art of listening in collaboration with artists; you give the Festival its true spirit.

The innovative music, the intimate setting, and the feeling of connection are only possible because of our generous Festival family. We hope that you will help us create the future of music. After all, this is your Festival!

No matter how much you are able to give, please know how grateful and excited we are to welcome you as part of the Festival family.
