Winter/Spring term has sprung at Opus!

The majority of our classes and lessons continue to be “virtual,” and the string and piano lessons that are “in person” are conducted with NYS guidelines and safety procedures in place.

We wish our entire community a safe and happy 2021, full of justice, peace, and of course-music.
