ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
We are an international gathering of musicians in celebration of music
Oregon Music Festival is a composer-focused international festival of classical music located in Portland, Oregon. An annual event, the festival highlights several composers whose works provide the centerpieces of performance activities. The repertoire includes great standards as well as lesser known masterworks. The Festival's many ensembles and programs offer a variety of collaborative opportunities for professional musicians as well as community young players. Here, the local, national and international musicians are brought into a creative dialogue whose sole purpose is to celebrate great classical music.
WELCOME TO OMF 2020
Opening with a new signature piece -- Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man -- and ending with the ecstatic sounds of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, the 2020 season pulsates with vivid colors, extraordinary artists, dramatic performances and a line up of nearly fifty major works. The ten-month long celebration, which extends from March to December of 2020, is divided into three sections: Spring, Summer and Fall editions. Each edition contributes in its own way to the season’s architecture. As a whole, It constitutes the first
part of a two-season fête that marks the festival’s 10-year anniversary. Appropriately, some 40 soloists and conductors, three orchestras, four chamber ensembles, and close to 200 ensemble musicians will perform 16 concerts, marking the apex of the first ten years of the “most significant musical event to hit the Oregon
concert stage in recent decades.”
This is Oregon Music Festival. You will not want to miss the occasion.
