Violinist Amaryn Olmeda Joins the Roster
Opus 3 Artists is thrilled to announce the addition of violinist Amaryn Olmeda to our roster for general management as part of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (SFCM) and Opus 3 Artist Apprentice Program. This new mentorship initiative pairs seasoned managers with an outstanding early-career musician and a network of support carefully crafted for the individual.
Winner of first prize and the audience choice award at the 24th Annual Sphinx Competition in 2021 at age 12, Amaryn Olmeda is a rising star sought after for her bold and expressive performances as a soloist and collaborator. In the 2021/22 season, Olmeda debuted as soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, Buffalo Philharmonic, Richmond Symphony, Stockton Symphony, Auburn Symphony and Classical Tahoe Orchestra. In 2020, Olmeda was featured as the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra’s Debut Artist at their New Year’s Concert Series, which earned her a nomination for the San Francisco Classical Voice Audience Choice Awards. She has been a fellow with National Public Radio’s classical music podcast, “From the Top.” Olmeda is a pre–college student and Joseph Chan Scholarship recipient at SFCM, studying violin with Ian Swensen.
“I am incredibly thrilled and honored to join the family of Opus 3 Artists,” said Olmeda. “Opus 3 has a long history of representing the finest solo performers and ensembles around the world, and now I have the privilege to be a part of their legacy. I am ecstatic about this opportunity, and I am looking forward to being on the stage again, this time as an Opus 3 Artist!”
“In Amaryn, we see a unique combination of superb training, keen musical instinct and charisma beyond her years,” said Opus 3 Managing Director Rob Berretta. “We are proud to welcome her to the Artist Apprentice Program, which continues Opus 3 Artists’ decades-long legacy of finding, nurturing and developing extraordinary young musical talent while delivering our common goal with SFCM to advance the future of music and offer successful platforms for artists at the start of their careers.”
