The Ventura Music Festival is more than pleased to announce there will indeed be a festival this Summer! “It’s on for July 23, 24 & 25 with three great programs, “ says VMF Executive Director Susan Scott: “Jazz and pop from singer-trombonist Aubrey Logan, who is “at the top of her game;” a fabulous crossover program from the sensational Time for Three; and a beautiful classical guitar performance by Italy’s Andrea Roberto, winner of the 2019 Parkening International Competition. To assure maximum safety and peace of mind, this year’s festival is a 100%-vaccinated event: artists, crew, audience, staff and volunteers.
The venue is the Pacifica High School Performing Arts Center in Oxnard. Ticket prices range from $15 to $70 and go on sale June 1st at www.VenturaMusicFestival.org. “It’s a simple two-step process,” said Scott, with buyers first uploading vaccination proof for each ticket-holder, after which a second link takes them to the ticket site. Buyers who run into difficulty with either step can call the VMF Box Office for help. Its hours: 11-4, Tuesday-Thursday, 805-648-3146. Scott recommends those interested look at the VMF website for more information on the artists, as well as on other Covid-related measures and facts pertaining to the July festival.
I think people are eager for live music and to gather together again,” said Board president Richard Reisman, “especially when they can do so safely. The 2021 festival is planned with that in mind, together with presenting the world-class music for which VMF is famous.”
The mission of the Ventura Music Festival is to build community through the shared experience of live, world-class music, and to create an inclusive environment in which people both see and hear themselves reflected in the music. For more information visit www.venturamusicfestival.org.
