Jazz star Maria Schneider, Grammy-winning composer and big band leader, makes her Ojai Music Festival debut at the 65th Ojai Music Festival with two concerts on Sunday, June 12 at 11a.m and 5:30p.m. The annual Southern California event, June 9 though 12, usually features classical composers and performers. This year, however, music director, Dawn Upshaw is bringing together a wide-range of programs and artistic collaborations over the course of the four days. On Sunday, Schneider will offer the world premiere of "Winter Morning Walks," composed especially for soprano Upshaw, who has been described as "one of the most consequential performers of our time" by the Los Angeles Times. Performing with her in the premiere will be the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
