Oberlin students and their faculty mentors devoted Winter Term to a pair of immersive musical projects at Hidden Valley, an institute of the arts located in Carmel Valley, California.

The projects—a TIMARA/dance collaboration and a chamber music intensive—culminated in a series of five public performances at Hidden Valley in January.

The bucolic locale also played into the Winter Term itinerary of the Oberlin Sonny Rollins Jazz Ensemble, which performed at the Hidden Valley Theater in addition to an engagement at SFJAZZ’s Miner Auditorium in San Francisco.

Since its founding in 1963, Hidden Valley has fostered artistic excellence through a diverse array of music education programs for youth, emerging artists, and adults.
