The Opus 76 Quartet: Sunrise Program is a mentoring initiative by The Friends of The Opus 76 Quartet. Its aim is to provide four talented young musicians of high school age or younger from the Kansas City Metro area with:
- Free in person quartet coaching and mentoring from members of The Opus 76 Quartet
- Free coaching from eminent guest classical musicians from around the world
- Two feature performances at Opus 76 Quartet concerts during the 2020/21 season
This Program, sponsored by generous donors of The Friends of the Opus 76 Quartet, will identify and nurture talented young aspiring musicians who are interested in a career in classical music and give successful applicants an experience of what it is like to be in a professional string quartet – from the practice room to the stage.
For the 2020/21 Season, there are four positions available in The Opus 76 Quartet: Sunrise Program : 2 violins, 1 viola and 1 cello. The violinists will rotate between 1st and 2nd violin, and the quartet will perform at least two movements per concert. We’re so excited to announce the winners of the inaugural Sunrise Program season: Sam Nissen, Elizabeth Horton, Hampy Henning, and Sylvia Brown!
