Music Omi International Music Residency Program 2018 for Musicians, Composers & Performers.

Application Deadline: January 2nd, 2018.

Every summer, Music Omi provides fellowships to approximately a dozen professional musicians—composers and performers from around the globe—to come together for two and a half weeks in a unique collaborative music making residency program. Not project-based, Music Omi invited fellows attend with their talents and an open mind rather than preconceived projects. Participants challenge their music-making practices and broaden their artistic horizons.

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 the presentation of public performances during and at the conclusion of the residency allowing fellows opportunities to share some of their collaborative work with the public.


  • Music Omi provides lodging, including a private room, and delicious meals for the fellows during their stay, though accepted fellows must secure their own travel funds.
  • All awarded fellows commit to remaining for the entire residency.
