2019 marks the fifth year of the Olympic Chamber Music Fellowship–the OMF’s internationally recognized educational program for young artists. Considered as one of the most unique professional training programs in the country, the Fellowship provides young artists the practical experience they need to navigate the grueling demands of a professional career.
OMF fellows perform alongside faculty artists August 10 & 11 at 2:00PM at the Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden State Park. Transcendence (August 10) features works by Brahms, Shostakovich, and Schubert. Musical Forefathers (August 11), features compositions by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and Mendelssohn that illustrate the profound impact each composer had on music history—from Bach's mind-boggling intricacy to Mendelssohn's romantic virtuosity.
the OMF concert series takes place on Saturdays and Sundays at 2PM at the Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden in Port Townsend August 10–September 8, except for August 24 & 25 (Northwest Maritime Center). Tickets are now on sale at olympicmusicfestival.org and by phone at 800.838.3006. Ticket prices are $20-$60 depending on seating and concerts.
