When I came up with the idea of the Opus Summer Tour one year ago, it was my dream to one year be able to perform at Carnegie Hall. Once a distant goal, it has now become a reality when our reservation was confirmed at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall on July 20, 2020, just one year after we started our inaugural Opus Summer Tour. I am so honored that our students will have a chance to play at one of the most (if not the most) prestigious concert halls in the world.
I hope you had a restful and nice holiday break. We look forward to seeing many of you at our January recital!
Very truly yours,
Mrs. Theresa Cheng
