Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The purpose of Oregon Music Festival is to promote, develop and nurture great art music for the benefit of the citizens of greater Portland area and all of Oregon, and to engage in creating opportunities for the public's musical growth, enjoyment, education and entertainment through the developments and operation of performance-oriented musical enterprises, festival programs, and concert programs of orchestral, choral or any other ensemble music.
Oregon Music Festival (OMF) is a professional, international festival of symphonic music, dedicated to performance, promotion and development of classical music. As a summer music festival the event seeks to fill a gap in the city's classical music offerings, in particular in the area of symphonic music. OMF is led by the Artistic Collegium (a group of distinguished musicians), managed by a professional staff and governed by local citizens. We are committed to high musical standards, the latest in music scholarship and music education. The festival seeks to engage both local and international artists and present a spectrum of complementary works with a core emphasis on one or more composers. OMF’s education efforts are channeled through Orpheus Academy Northwest which provides mentoring to young local musicians by festival’s resident artists. OMF 206 is scheduled for June 18-June 30; it is dedicated to the works of two great composers: Schumann and Stravinsky.
