On Thursday, May 16, the Early Birds Celebration to launch ticket sales for the 2019 Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival will begin at 8:00 am in front of Orcas Center. For years, loyal Orcas Island patrons have lined up for this traditional “Early Birds” ticketing opportunity to select their concerts and seats before sales open online or by phone. Festival staff will be there to help with ticket orders and answer questions about this summer’s music and musicians. Early Birds patrons will keep warm and fortified with plenty of coffee, tea, and treats, and a raffle of Festival goodies and light entertainment at various points during the morning will keep things lively!
Telephone ticket sales can be made beginning Friday, May 17th, through the Orcas Center Box Office at 360-376-2281. The box office is open Tuesdays through Fridays from noon to 3:00 pm.
This year’s Festival will please everyone’s ears with opera great Susan Graham, a world premiere by composer Kevin Puts, classical guitar, lots of strings, and a dash of magic. For more information about the 2019 Festival, visit http://oicmf.org/ or call the OICMF Office at 360-376-6636.
