Harpsichordist Arthur Omura Performs Online from Walnut Creek

Hosted by St. Paul's Concert Series from Walnut Creek

St. Paul’s Concert Series is excited to present Harpsichordist Arthur Omura in a live performance, broadcast from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Walnut Creek, California on Saturday, January 29 at 7pm pst. This performance will be broadcast online only (due to COVID-19 risk, we are suspending all in-house audiences until the risk is reduced again in our community).

Arthur Omura is a specialist in historical keyboard instruments based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He studied with Charles Rus in San Francisco, and with Dr. Lucinda Carver at the University of Southern California. He has performed at the Boston and Berkeley Early Music festivals and given numerous performances in Los Angeles and the Bay Area. He has worked with MicroFest, wildUp, iPalpiti, Les Surprises Baroques, Musica Angelica, and the American Bach Soloists.

Omura has collaborated on several recordings, most recently on "Kontrapunktus", a collection of new music by composer Mark Moya written in a Baroque idiom. His interest in instrument making and organology led him to work with harpsichord builder Curtis Berak, whom he has assisted in restoring several instruments, and with organ builder Manuel Rosales. Omura is the director of music at Grace Episcopal Church in Martinez, California. For St. Paul's, Mr. Omura has compiled "The Duels", featuring harpsichord pieces from Handel, Scarlatti, Bach, and Marchand.

 Located in downtown Walnut Creek, the St. Paul’s Concert Series offers monthly world-class performances to the local community for an affordable, donation-based cost. Average donations are $20/$10 students. All are welcome, regardless of donation.
