About OPUS 216
OPUS 216 began in 2012 with their first performance at the inaugural MIX event at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Since then, the ensemble has provided music for hundreds of events throughout Ohio, from public stages for large audiences to intimate home concerts.
The musicians of OPUS 216 are versatile and fully professional, with most performers holding multiple degrees from some of the country’s top classical music conservatories. Past performers with OPUS 216 have gone on to perform in major orchestras, touring ensembles, and hold faculty positions at prestigious universities. Players are just at home with The Beatles as they are with Bach or Beethoven. OPUS 216 artists are frequently called upon for recording sessions with area producers and recording engineers and enjoy creating original music, creative covers, and adaptations of modern songs.
OPUS 216 presents performances throughout northeast Ohio, year round. Past and current collaborating institutions and organizations include the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland International Piano Competition, American Greetings, Cleveland Clinic, the Cleveland Arts Prize, Case Western Reserve University, Gordon Square Arts District, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Transformer Gallery, Sofar Sounds Cleveland, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and others.
As an adaptable, modular ensemble, OPUS 216 provides music for dozens of private events and weddings annually.
