The Ojai Valley has long been considered a hub of culture and the arts, with a number of annual music festivals, studio shows, art tours and other events.
It may come as a surprise, then, that there has never been an orchestral composition inspired by and written for the Ojai Valley — until now. April 25, young musicians with the Ojai Youth Symphony (OYS) will team up with adult musicians to perform the premiere of the new piece, "Valley of the Moon Suite."
