Don’t Miss: Ensemble Modern with George Benjamin June 13
Located an hour north of Los Angeles, Ojai has been a hub of West Coast idealism and eclecticism for 64 years. The festival has also maintained a sense of artistic renewal, thanks to its rotating artistic leadership. The British composer George Benjamin curates the 2010 edition of the festival with everything from Indian Ragas to Frank Zappa and Henry Purcell. The closing night program, with Ensemble Modern making its West Coast debut, is a survey of landmark works by Messiaen, Ligeti, Boulez, Knussen and Benjamin himself.
