Santa took time out from his busy schedule to stop by the OPYO Dress Rehearsal, and to make sure none of the OPYO musicians, including its Director, Mr. Barg, were on his naughty list. He helped generate an abundance of Holiday Wonder and Good Will that is sure to carry over to the OPYO Winter concert this Monday, December 14th, 2015 at 7:30 pm at Horton Farms. If you would like to experience some of the magic, merriment, and mystery that this jolly old elf embodies you can reserve your seats today at OPYO.org for their Holiday Wonder Concert.
Hello my name is Chari Cross, and I am excited to take on the role of OPYO Manager! I will be writing this blog (My Cavatina) to share what's going on behind the scenes at OPYO. I have been involved with the arts since studying classical ballet at age 8, have played acoustic guitar, and love to express my artistic vision through photography. I also have a BBA from the University of Michigan, am a General Motors Corporation alum and have two sons in YSO, and one at the U of A. In my free time I enjoy playing in the dirt and creating lasting beauty with the Benton County Master Gardeners which I have done for the past 15 years, writing poetry, and researching my family geneology. The arts have always provided me with nourishment for my soul, and I am filled with gratitude to be able to connect with others who share in this love that transcends the linear aspect of time as well as an amalgam of diverse artisic mediums and cultures, and pass it on!
