Yachats, Oregon has been the seaside home to the Yachats International Music Festival for 34 years. The Festival was first envisioned by its Founder, the late Dr. W. Hazaiah Williams, who directed the Festival from its inception in 1981 until his death in 1999. The Festival continues in his memory, with dedication to his vision and spirit.
The Festival concerts are organized so that most artists perform in each concert, either in solo or ensemble pieces. The mostly classical repertoire is often augmented by jazz, Latin, Spirituals, Flamenco and Broadway melodies. The four daytime seminars are presented by four or more chosen artists.
Artists for the 34th Yachats International Music Festival include: Ayn Balija, violist; Leon Bates, pianist; Chiao-Wen Cheng, pianist; Portia Diwa, Celtic harpist; Marco Granados, flutist; Gerry Hecht, pianist; Dennis Helmrich, pianist; Cornelius Johnson, tenor; Kimberly Jones, soprano; Elaine Kreston, cellist; Rafael LeBron, baritone; Ilya Martinez, soprano; Autris Paige, baritone; Tom Rose, clarinetist; David Sigal, pianist; Anthony Turner, baritone; David Wong, guzheng and guqin; Anyango Yarbo-Davenport, violinist; and Jeongeun Yom, pianist.
