Ojai Festival New Libbey  Seats photoBowlThe Ojai Music Festival was first begun in 1947 and since become a tradition and not-to-be missed event for classic music fans in the Southern California region for its long list of musical greats who have played on its stage or directed its orchestras, composers Aaron Copeland and John Adams, artists Emanuel Ax and James Levine, conductors like Michael Tilson Thomas and Eka Pekka Salonen. The festival held every June among the trees in Libbey Park, named for the one time glass magnate who retired to Ojai and built the city’s iconic mission style look. For 2011, the Ojai Festival gets a new bowl. After hosting the music performances under the open sky, the first bowl amphitheater stage in the park, a volunteer do-it-yourself community effort was completed in 1957 and inaugurated with a premier of Aaron Copeland’s The Tender Land.
