HELP US BRING NEW MUSIC TO LIFE!

Other Minds works year-round to bring the best composers and performers of non-commercial music to the attention of the world. Support from people like you is essential to this valuable work.

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.
