We’re thrilled to have the talented Arthur Omura, harpsichordist be a part of the 10-HR Bach Marathon at Union Station. Arthur will be performing in the Coffee Cantata, with Concerto NoHo, and will be featured in the extremely virtuosic harpsichord solo part for the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, as well as other works. Arthur Omura is a specialist in historical keyboard instruments. He studied organ repertoire of the Baroque under Charles Rus in San Francisco, modern technique under Dr. Ladd Thomas at the University of Southern California, and harpsichord repertoire under Dr. Lucinda Carver at USC. He has performed at the Boston and Berkeley Early Music festivals and given numerous performances at home in Los Angeles. Omura keeps an active performance schedule as an organist and harpsichord player. He has worked with MicroFest, Orchestra Santa Cecilia, iPalpiti, Les Surprises Baroques, Musica Angelica, and the Los Angeles Baroque Players. Omura can be heard 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 led him to work with harpsichord builder Curtis Berak, whom he has assisted in restoring several instruments, and with organ builder Manuel Rosales. Omura has a Master’s Degree from the University of Southern California.
