“Peter Sellars is one of the important artists of our time and one of the important artists in this area. To have him preside over the 70th anniversary seemed like a fairly delicious idea.” – Thom Morris, Ojai Music Festival Artistic Director
From June 9th to 12th, the Ojai Music Festival will bring modern classical music to some of the most scenic venues around. This year, experimental opera director Peter Sellars is the music director and he has quite a program in store for the 70th anniversary season, one that emphasizes starting new traditions as much as honoring the old ones. Below, hear Artistic Director Thom Morris talk with KUSC’s Gail Eichenthal about what we can look forward to with this year’s festival.
