It was so much fun to get to perform as part of the 2018 Ojai Music Festival. The opening night performance of Nono’s La lontananza nostalgica utopia futura was reviewed in the LA Times and Ventura County Star.

I was also one of the eight (!!!!!!!!) basses for Ustvolskaya’s Dies Irae on Saturday night. Steve Smith wrote about his experience of the festival here (and includes a couple notes and photos of the Dies Irae performance).

Full festival reviews also appear in the NY Times, LA Times, and The New Yorker.
