Please join us as we wage beauty and lift up our youth through music! Experience the joy of music through the performances of our students and faculty. 

This concert is a celebration of music education. As OPC's first concert since rebounding from displacement in 2014, 
it is a testament of the power of music. 

Student performances include: Trumpet Class, Piano Class, Guitar, Zimbabwean Marimbas, Afro-Peruvian Cajón, the OPC-SFJAZZ Academy Big Band, OPC's pre-professional training ensemble-The Frederick Douglass Youth Ensemble and students in our newest program, Black Girls Play.
