The Fields Sculpture Park at Omi International Arts Center in Ghent, New York, is a surreal vista of large-scale abstract art—and the perfect setting for a closing performance by participants of the facility’s Music Omi program. Every summer, Music Omi invites approximately a dozen musicians—composers and performers from around the globe—to come together for two and a half weeks in a unique collaborative music making residency.

Everyone accepted to Music Omi receives lodging, including a private room, and delicious meals during his or her stay, though accepted fellows must secure their own travel funds. All awarded fellows commit to remaining for the entire residency. There is no application fee to apply for consideration to the program and no fee to attend.
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.

The Music Omi experience includes public performances where invited fellows share some of their collaborative work during the residency, and includes performances at Club Helsinki in Hudson and, at the program’s conclusion, at the Fields Sculpture Park on the Omi campus.

Here’s a virtual tour of the park showing current and past exhibits:


The deadline for artist residency applications is February 1. For applications and more information, visit www.artomi.org/music.
