From an airy outdoor concert shell, Ojai Music Festival celebrates its 65th anniversary with a weekend of euphoric euphonics from a variety of musicians and composers. The festival kicks off on Thursday evening with a triumphant swell of song hosted by music director Dawn Upshaw. Concert-goers seated in Section A are serenaded by the vocal mastery of artists from the Bard College Conservatory of Music's graduate vocal-arts program, engaging in solos, duets, and complex sing-offs with their alter egos. The program boasts pieces composed by giants such as Purcell and Copland, as well as several works composed for the Bard singers by emerging composer David Bruce.
Saturday morning ushers in the weekend with a tuneful violin-and-piano alarm clock, as sounded by string-bowing Richard Tognetti and key-tapping Gilbert Kalish. The chordophone duo crescendo their way through ear-arts from composers such as Beethoven, Janácek, and Prokofiev. From Section B seating, audience members can absorb melodics while gazing at the tree canopy and its harpsichord-playing squirrels.
