OUMS Executive Committee 2018-2019
Hi I’m Alex and I’m the 2018-9 President! I’ve played trumpet in a bunch of different ensembles in Oxford but I spend most of my time with OUWO, which I Managed last year during their tour to the US. As President my job is to oversee the activities of OUMS and act as a liaison for orchestra Managers, members and also the Music Faculty.
My main goal this year is to help create a greater sense of cohesion within the Oxford music scene, whether that’s in the form of creating networks of College Music Societies or Gigging Bands or just getting people together for Bakesales, Crewdates and Pub Crawls! If you have any questions at all feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
Hi I’m Bradley. I’m a horn player mainly with OUO and OUWO but I’ve also played with OUPhil and OUBB. I’ve been involved with committees as OUWO social sec (I love stash), OUO treasurer and being part of the team that organised OUWO’s US East Coat tour (I love tour stash). My role as VP is mainly focused on securing more funding for all of us through sponsorship and also trying to make use of our extensive alumni base. My aims for the year are to make OUMS more fun and run more smoothly for everyone involved
Hi! I’m Josh and the Secretary for this year. Currently a first year music student at Oriel, in my first two terms I was a percussionist for OUO, OUWO and OUPhil as well as (briefly) being the Assistant Conductor for OUWO. OUMS has been a great platform for me to get involved in Oxford life right from the outset and can’t wait to get stuck in even more. I look forward to sending you your weekly updates and minuting those all exciting meetings. I already have a prior knowledge that you definitely won’t read these. Oh well
I’m a second year physicist at Wadham college, but spend almost all my free time playing my clarinets and bass clarinet, plus any clarinets anyone else lets me have a go with. I can usually be found playing clarinet in Ensemble ISIS and bass clarinet for OUO, though I often play with many other groups on an ad-hoc basis. I have also played alongside the Hallé orchestra twice, and the BBC Philharmonic at the 2016 proms. I am still only slowly coming to terms with the fact that I may never own a contrabass clarinet, nor an Ab supersopranino.
As webmaster, I update and maintain the OUMS website and the associated mailing lists and player databases, and I also (separately) administrate the OUO website. Any website-related queries or suggestions would be welcome at email@example.com.
