Event Announcement: Ojai Music Festival and Slow Food Luncheon

Celebrate the sounds and bounty of Ojai! Our friends in the Slow Food Ojai/Ventura convivium have asked us to share news of a June event in Ojai:

Immerse yourself in adventurous music and mouthwatering food at the 62nd Ojai Music Festival on Sunday, June 8, 2008.

First, experience a world-class concert featuring groundbreaking percussion works by Gyorgy Ligeti, Edgar Varese and Steve Reich at 11:00am in the enchanting outdoor Libbey Bowl. A concert filled with musical textures and layers will be performed by members of the acclaimed So Percussion, Nexus, and Steve Reich himself.

After the concert at 1:00pm, walk to the Lavender Inn in downtown Ojai for a Harvest Luncheon hosted by Slow Food Ojai/Ventura. You will be treated to a special lunch featuring locally grown seasonal fruits and vegetables created by Slow Food members and chefs/bakers Jeri Oshima (Treasure Beach Cafe) and Bobbi Corbin (Knead Bakery). Also, local farmers and specialty food creators will be on hand with samples.

Tickets for both the concert and the luncheon are available at www.OjaiFestival.org. (Choose Tickets –> Single Tickets –> and then select June 8 from the calendar. Both concert tickets and tickets for the Harvest Lunch are listed.) The cost of the Slow Food lunch will be $45 per person.
