Music enthusiasts from across the globe gathered in Ojai last week for performances that critics applauded as “sensational,” “magisterial,” and “beyond-flabbergasting.”
Thanks to an open-minded community of audience members and dedicated volunteers, the Festival achieved an atmosphere of musical adventure highlighted by:
- Music Director Steven Schick’s boundless energy and incredible versatility, performing in and conducting almost in a dozen concerts over the course of five days
- An audience for live streamed events of more than 5,800 viewers from 74 countries
- Close to 3,000 people attended free community events and late night concerts, including the mesmerizing West Coast premiere of John Luther Adam’s Sila: The Breath of the World in Libbey Park
All of this is made possible by contributions from generous people like you, who believe in the power of music to transform a community into a refuge from our daily concerns, where extraordinary experiences are shared by artists and audiences.
Please consider making a gift by July 31st, the final date of our 69th season. Your commitment is what keeps the Festival strong and makes it possible for us to continue to stake a claim for the new, the curious, the visionary and the path breaking.
