About Music Omi
Every summer, Music Omi invites approximately tweleve to fifteen 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 broadening 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 to share some of their collaborative work with the public.
This summer, South Korean Ajaeng player Min Joung Kim has been selected as one of the fellows.
