Hey Everybody — I will be taking sabbatical beginning this October. I'll be in Spain studying Spanish. Performances to Grow On will take a hiatus from presenting during the 2015-2016 season. We won't be presenting any festivals or concerts.
Thank you for your support — Brian Bemel

The NEW Libbey Bowl
Thanks to the dedication and diligent effort of the Ojai community, the new Libbey Bowl became a reality in June 2011. More than 750 families joined hands and hearts to achieve a shared vision: giving Ojai a state-of-the-art cultural venue that will serve our community for decades to come. www.libbeybowl.org
Beautiful Ojai Valley
In fast-paced Southern California, Ojai remains a place apart, suspended in time.
Tucked away from the world, like the mythical paradise of Shangri-La, Ojai offers a place to relax, wind back the clock and rediscover nature, art and yourself.
