CONTANDO ESPANOL-- our 6th year of OYO SUMMER CAMP has just concluded! 2 weeks celebrating Spanish Opera, Zarzuela and Spanish Art Song culminated in 2 magnificent performances at the Ojai Art Center Theater on August 18th & August 20th. If you missed the sold out, standing-room-only performances, we will have a video up soon. THANK YOU to everyone who came out and supported these incredible workshop performers, whose magic never ceases to amaze us all!

2016 SUMMER WORKSHOP  "ITALIAN MASTERS" WAS A STELLAR SUCCESS!

We are still giddy from the resounding success of our 5th year of OYO Summer Workshop!  For two weeks, our young performers worked hard learning Baroque Italian Operas-- and having lots of fun! The culminating performances at the Ojai Art Center on August 13th and 14th were nothing short of spellbinding.
