MusicIC Festival

to Jun 23

MusicIC Festival

MusicIC was inaugurated in 2010 by Artistic Director Tricia Park and Managing Director Judith Hurtig. In Park’s words, she and Hurtig created the festival “out of our deep love for Iowa City and the community, and we wanted to be sure that the festival reflects what the community is about and also that it be rooted in this place. Not to offer just another generic music festival, but a festival that the community could connect to and be invested in as well. The City of Literature designation was a strong inspiration for the genesis of MusicIC and our fruitful relationship with Amy Margolis and Summer Writing Festival has strengthened these musical and literary ties.” A secondary mission has been to bring “Iowa grown” musicians and artists back to Iowa City; young performers who have the potential for or are embarked upon major careers in music.
