Oregon Festival of American Music (OFAM) includes musicals, concerts, movies, lectures and special events. The festival will feature nine evening and five matinee concerts, a jazz party and a production of Guys and Dolls. This year's celebration, titled In the Hands of the Muses, continues last year's theme of exploring classic songbook material, and will include many practitioners of music from the Great American Songbook. Be prepared for a fascinating assortment of obvious and not-so-obvious selections, including compositions from George Gershwin to Frank Loesser and music from legendary performers such as Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Barbara Streisand, Louis Armstrong and more.
OFAM's 2018 Musical, Guys and Dolls, will run from July 20 - July 29, while concerts start on August 1 and conclude on August 11.
