Master Artist Series

An important instructional strategy at OCSA is to bring master artists and industry leaders to share their gifts, career stories, and expertise with students through residencies, master classes, lectures, and performances. Our Master Artist Series supports high-profile visiting artists who create meaningful and often life-changing experiences for our student artists. Guest artists have included jazz trumpeter, composer, and educator Wynton Marsalis; Grammy Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell; actress, playwright, activist, and educator Anna Deavere Smith; opera soprano Deborah Voigt; renowned executive chef Alex Guarnaschelli; concert violinist and educator Midori; songwriter and Disney legend Richard Sherman; composer and conductor Marvin Hamlisch; acclaimed mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade; filmmaker and director Francis Ford Coppola; dancer and choreographer Debbie Allen; and many more.
