Residencies to USA, Canada, and International performing musicians and composers to participate in a music-focused gathering in the New York City area. Residents will be able to share creative ideas with each other and collaborate on compositions. This program provides artists with the opportunity to explore their own musical vision and broaden their artistic and cultural horizons.

A singular feature of the Music Omi experience is the presentation of public performances during and at the conclusion of the residency to share some of their collaborative work with the public.

Everyone accepted to Music Omi receives lodging, including a private room, and delicious meals during his or her stay, but accepted fellows must secure their own travel funds. All awarded fellows commit to remaining for the entire residency.
