EXPLORE OUR PAST EVENTS
People are still talking about OM Festival 22, which presented some of Lou Harrison’s most loved work, and a few rarely heard gems. Over 800 people attended the May 20, 2017 concert at San Francisco’s beautiful Mission Dolores Basilica. Meanwhile, our series The Nature of Music has presented artists from a variety of disciplines whose work combines environmentalism and the arts. Our Special Events run the gamut from intimate presentations of a composer’s work to bucket-list exotic blow-outs.
Six days of sound poetry flooded the ODC theater this April. The festival included many new works, including seven world premiers, and a night of historic works of sound poetry.
Marielle V. Jakobsons is a composer and intermedia artist based in Oakland, CA. Her compositions use a custom-built Macro-Cymatic Instrument to blend fluid visuals with her electronic dreamscapes.
In December of 2017, conductor/pianist Dennis Russell Davies and pianist Maki Namekawa came together for a night of music by Philip Glass at St. John’s Presbyterian Church in Berkeley, CA.
