Master Classes with Masters

The Musicians of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra are happy to announce a collaboration with Grammy winning conductor Kirk Smith in his distance-learning series “Master Classes with Masters.” There are many communities across the country which provide excellent school music programs, but whose students may not have the opportunity to work with world-class orchestral musicians. Through these internet-based Master Classes we will offer the legacy of our own musical training in real time to a wide network of young people, and make lasting connections with a new generation of opera fans. The first Master Classes will take place during the 2014 Fall Opera Season with students at Conroe High School in Conroe, Texas.
