2021 Festival August 6 – 21
Our 24th Season
Clarinet! Horn! Bassoon! Bass! Return of the Montrose Trio and Kostov & Valkov! And of course, plenty of violins, violas, cellos and piano – our 24th Season is shaping up to be another wonderful two-plus weeks of amazing music and musicians!
We will be offering five pairs of concerts on August 6 & 7, 10 & 11, 13 & 14, 17 & 18, and 20 & 21. The first night of each pair will be at 7:30 p.m. (Pacific Time), and the same repertoire will be repeated at 5:30 p.m. the next evening.
We are welcoming live audiences to every show!
In addition, the second night of each concert pair will be livestreamed!
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.
