Opus Osm

Find out how keeping a simple blog current can help bring more people to your performances. Watch the free Opus Osm webinar.

Success for Classical Performers: Opus Osm’s First, Free Online Webinar

Thursday, June 28 at 6:30 pm Prague time, you can watch an online discussion (“webinar”) about basic social media for musicians, singers, dancers, and anyone involved in the performing arts. It’s a strictly educational broadcast, and absolutely free of charge.

It’s called “Finding Your Audience and Filling Your Online Auditorium” (Najdi svoje diváky a zaplň svoje hlediště). The topic is blogging — the difference between a blog and a website, how to get started blogging, and more. The informal discussion is hosted by Opus Osm in Prague, and two other hosts in the US.

Learning how to have a simple but effective blog can help you invite more people to your performances … introduce them to you and your special art … and show people why what you do is so interesting and important.

Starting and keeping your own blog is a lot simpler than you might think. And it can even be free! You can find out more about it just by watching the free webinar.

To get started, here’s a short introduction video (click on play, then on the small red “cc” in the lower right corner to see Czech subtitles):

You can watch the whole webinar at once, live; or you can watch it in parts, divided up into several, shorter segments. Here’s how:

To watch the whole webinar at once (approx. 1.5 hours), live: At 6:30 pm Prague time, Thursday, June 28 go to this address: It will be in English only.
