Omi International Arts Center has recently opened applications for its 2015 Music Omi International Musicians Residency program, inviting all composers and performers from around the globe to apply.
Every summer, Music Omi invites musicians to come together for a unique collaborative music making residency program. Music Omi encourages its participants to share ideas; perform each other’s works and write music for one another while exploring their own musical vision; and broaden their artistic and cultural horizons.
A singular feature of the Music Omi experience is the presentation of public performances during and at the conclusion of the residency, sharing some of their collaborative work with the public.
Approximately a dozen musicians get accepted in the program each year. Everyone accepted to Music Omi receives lodging, including a private room, and delicious meals during his or her stay, but accepted fellows must secure their own travel funds.
Omi International Arts Center, where the Music Omi residency takes place, is located two and a half hours north of New York City in the historic Hudson River Valley’s Columbia County.
The 2015 Residency is scheduled for 23 July – 9 August, 2015.
