OPUS 216 began in 2012 with their first performance at the inaugural MIX event at

the Cleveland Museum of Art. Since then, the ensemble has provided music for hundreds of

events throughout Ohio, from public stages for large audiences to intimate home concerts.


The musicians of OPUS 216 are versatile and fully professional, with most

performers holding multiple degrees from some of the country’s top classical music

conservatories. Past performers with OPUS 216 have gone on to perform in major

orchestras, touring ensembles, and hold faculty positions at prestigious universities. Players

are just at home with The Beatles as they are with Bach or Beethoven. OPUS 216 artists are

frequently called upon for recording sessions with area producers and recording engineers

and enjoy creating original music, creative covers, and adaptations of modern songs.


OPUS 216 presents performances throughout northeast Ohio, year round. Past and

current collaborating institutions and organizations include the Cleveland Museum of Art,

the Cleveland International Piano Competition, American Greetings, Cleveland Clinic, the

Cleveland Arts Prize, Case Western Reserve University, Gordon Square Arts District, the

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Transformer Gallery, Sofar Sounds Cleveland, the Cleveland

Institute of Music, and others.

As an adaptable, modular ensemble, OPUS 216 provides music for dozens of private

events and weddings annually.
