The monthly newsletter of the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival
Tickets Now Available!

Tickets to the 24th Season of the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival, August 6 – 21, are now available! We are so excited to be offering both in-person and livestreamed performances, so everyone can enjoy live music in the way most comfortable to them.

Our livestreams will be state-of-the-art multi-camera productions with direction by Adam Stern and audio engineering by Roger Sherman. It will be a top-notch, intimate, and wonderful experience! They are available at no charge, thanks to sponsorship from the Robert Henigson Board Designated Fund. There are no limits to how many can join us on the livestream, so spread the word to friends and relations near and far – now is their chance to experience the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival! Registration is required; you (and they) can sign up by scrolling down to the Livestream Concerts section here.

For our in-person performances, we will be following all Covid-19 safety protocols, including, at this point, selling a limited number of socially-distanced seats. We shall be re-evaluating our capacity as we get closer to concert dates, so if the concert you want to attend in person is sold out, please do check back. We will be requiring audience members to be masked for the full performance…see below* for the perfect mask-cessory!

Please note: The box office WILL NOT be open on concert nights; all tickets must be purchased in advance!

Sophie and Aloysia show how great YOU can look in our new OICMF masks!
*OICMF Masks!*

Show your OICMF love and support fine music! OICMF masks are perfect for concert-goers, travelers, or anyone else! Our new OICMF logo mask in basic black will accent any outfit and eye color.

Triple-layer, with the two inner layers 100% cotton, it feels cozy and snuggly against your face. The mask has a filter pocket, a nose wire to keep your glasses clear, and deliciously soft adjustable ear straps.

Shipping is available or pick-up at OICMF World Headquarters in Eastsound. Just call (360) 376-6636 or (866) 492-0003 toll free today to order. Operators are standing by! (Well, they are standing by from 10:00-5:00 PDT Monday through Friday). And don’t forget, it is almost Christmas…
We look forward to sharing more OICMF news and events with you - keep your eyes peeled for next month's Scherzo!
