We are very pleased to announce that the 2018 Opus Competition Festival results are in. We received many high-quality compositions and it made the festival very competitive. Congratulations to all students who submitted entries! Judge David Schneider mentioned how very impressed and extremely pleased with the compositions he was and stated that all of the students should be very proud of their works.
