OPUS Musical Journeys™

OPUS Musical Journeys™ or “OMJ” is an online program series designed for violin, viola, cello, contrabass, piano, clarinet, flute, classical guitar, and harp students ages 8-18 who are looking to challenge and expand their musical skills throughout the year, with the same great tutoring and small class sizes offered at the highly acclaimed annual OPUS Chamber Music Camp. OPUS aims at providing the following benefits for this program:

  • Meet new friends while learning skills together
  • Expand your creativity by connecting to the arts
  • Share your final project in a web watch-party concert

Additional benefits:

  1. Further development of chamber music artistry where student’s April’s chamber music piece can serve as audition video for the July-August Camp
  2. Prolonging student’s interest of Arts Connections projects offered at the OPUS Chamber Music Camp and further develop it to a higher level each year before the Camp
  3. All students who signed up for 5 COURSES will receive $50 tuition discount for the same year OPUS Chamber Music Camp, additional to the existing offer of Past Camper discount ($50) or Sibling Discount ($50)
  4. Performance to seniors and veterans by sharing the OMJ videos; and in an Web-Watch Party (with possible inclusion of solo pieces)
  5. Advantageous readiness to an already discussed and planned future OPUS Music Composition Competition event.
