Every summer, Music Omi invites approximately a dozen musicians — composers and performers from around the globe — to come together for two and a half weeks in a unique collaborative music making residency program. Music Omi encourages its participants to share ideas; perform each other’s works and write music for one another while exploring their own musical vision; and broaden their artistic and cultural horizons.
A singular feature of the Music Omi experience is the presentation of public performances during and at the conclusion of the residency, sharing some of their collaborative work with the public.
Musicians, composers and performers from around the globe are welcomed to send their applications.
Everyone accepted to Music Omi receives lodging, including a private room, and meals during his or her stay, but accepted fellows must secure their own travel funds. All awarded fellows commit to remaining for the entire residency.
You can apply for the residency here where you need to upload an audio or video work sample of no longer than 4 minutes total. You will also be asked to provide a brief bio (175 words or fewer) and a short narrative explaining why you would like to attend Music Omi.
