An Evening of Conversation with Composer Jake Heggie
On Thursday, May 27, at 5:00 PM Pacific Time, composer and pianist Jake Heggie joins OICMF Artistic Director Aloysia Friedmann for an informative and entertaining discussion about Jake’s career. A Guggenheim Fellow, Jake is internationally known for his operas and compositions for music groups, both large and small. His first opera, “Dead Man Walking,” based on the book by Sister Helen Prejean, premiered with opera stars Susan Graham and Frederica von Stade playing lead roles. Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival has commissioned a number of Jake’s compositions, which have been performed at our summer Festivals. Read more …
Aloysia, could you please tell us a bit about the plans for our 24th Season in August 2021?
Our newly freshened logo and a few colorful OICMf icons would like to take a bow
The Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival is looking forward to a brilliant future and the opportunity to celebrate our 24th season with you in 2021.
To accompany this bright outlook, we have freshened our logo and added colorful new “iconic badges” which will begin to appear in communications this year. The logo illustration and text offer the promise of a destination event, a world-class music festival on an island surrounded by salt water and snow-capped mountains – Classical Music with a View.
The original logo, the freshened one, and the badges were created by graphic designer Kevin Kelliher of Bellingham, Washington, to interpret our tagline “Classical Music with a View,” written by Ed Wilson of Orcas Island.
Note that the OICMF badges use a playful, italicized “f,” which isa music symbol for “forte” or “to be played loudly” and also resembles the f-holes in the bodies of violins, violas, and other stringed instruments.
We hope you will enjoy this fresh new imagery as we reach out to share our Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival with you this year.
