Ojai at Berkeley (formerly Ojai North), 2016

At the end of this post you'll find the schedule for this year's Ojai at Berkeley. It's only three performances, where Ojai at Ojai has a dozen or so - this is very unfortunate. The Berkeley set doesn't come close to reflecting what will be performed to the south.

Just heard Julia Bullock in recital last Thursday. Lovely singer, interesting program--who starts an afternoon recital with an audience of mostly retirees with -- Henry Cowell?!

Looking forward to hearing her, but I think I have to go to Ojai itself.
