Omi International Arts Center announces it is now accepting applications for the collaborative Music Omi musicians residency program, taking place 11 August—28 August, 2016.
Performing composers, composing performers, improvising musicians, experimental and creative music-makers, traditional and folk players, singer-songwriters, and sound artists from all musical disciplines and backgrounds who wish to take part in a collaborative music residency are encouraged to apply.
Every summer, Music Omi invites 12-15 musicians—composers and performers from around the world—to come together for two and a half weeks in a unique collaborative music making residency program located at Omi International Arts Center in Ghent, NY.
Residents of Music Omi receive lodging, including a private room, and delicious meals during their stay. Invited fellows must secure their own travel funds to the campus.
Since its founding, the Omi International Arts Center has been guided by the principle that artistic expression transcends economic, political, and cultural boundaries. Music Omi reflects that commitment, as do Omi’s other residency programs for writers, visual artists and dancers.
