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 schedule as an organist and harpsichord player. He has worked with MicroFest, wildUp, iPalpiti, and Musica Angelica Baroque Orchestra. Omura can be heard on several recordings, most recently on “Spirits of the Air”, a collaboration between countertenor Brian Asawa and mezzo-soprano Diana Tash, out on LML Music. 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.
