The Olympic Music Festival’s mission is to present world class chamber musicians in performance of diverse repertoire for the enjoyment, enrichment, and education of our community.
The Olympic Music Festival is a summer chamber music festival with a focus on world-class performances, a casual atmosphere, and community involvement. Concerts take place on Saturdays and Sundays at 2PM, offering a different program each weekend and occasionally on each day.
Weeklong artist residencies offer opportunities for ongoing collaboration between festival artists, culminating in weekend performances that showcase their creative efforts. Before performing each piece, artists give an educational introduction touching upon the nuances of composition, biographical details of composers, and the historical contexts in which the works were written. Patrons are able to engage with artists on an intimate level that is unique to our festival.
The 2015 summer season marked the inaugural year of the Iglitzin Chamber Music Fellowship. The two-week Iglitzin Fellowship Program offers an invaluable career opportunity for up-and-coming musicians to work side by side with seasoned professionals. Named after festival founder Alan Iglitzin, the fellowship continues the legacy of Mr. Igliztin’s dedication to chamber music education.
2016 marks the first season of the OMF in Port Townsend. Performances for the 2016 season take place at the Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden in partnership with the Centrum Foundation.
