Olympic Music Festival kicks off fellowship series

The Olympic Music Festival, a summer season of concerts in partnership with Centrum at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, presents the first week of the popular Olympic Chamber Music Fellowship program. This is the fourth year of the Olympic Chamber Music Fellowship, OMF’s cornerstone educational program. The fellowship is made up of five highly talented young artists who are selected following a competitive international audition process.

The doors open at 1:30 p.m. and the concerts begin at 2 p.m. at the Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden.

On Saturday, Aug. 11, the program features “Rhapsodies from Eastern Europe” (Kodály, Shostakovich, Dvorák, Pärt) while the Sunday, Aug. 12, concerts feature “Vocal Inspirations” (Schubert, Brahms, Dvorák).

The performers will be available after the concert for a question and answer session.
