OUMS Executive Committee 2021-2022

Reuben Tendler – President

I am a 2nd year Musician at Pembroke, playing the horn and trombone in a number of ensembles. As this year’s President, my main aim is to get back to holding in-person rehearsals and concerts! Making sure this is done safely and without compromising full accessibility is my top priority. 2022 also marks 150 of OUMS, so I am hoping that we can celebrate our anniversary with a gala concert and special events.

Holly Hart – Vice-President

Hi! I’m Holly and I’m a second-year music student at Lincoln College. I have played the harp in OUO since Hilary Last year, which sadly means I only got to play in one concert – although the fact that it was Mahler 9 definitely makes me feel better about that. I’m looking forward to helping to reintroduce live music this year as OUMS vice-president, and making sure that all the OUMS ensembles have the support they need. Looking forward to *hopefully* meeting you all at rehearsals and concerts in the coming terms!

Jay Chitnavis – Treasurer

Hi! I’m Jay and I’m in my second year studying Music at New College. As Treasurer, my goal for the upcoming year is to facilitate as many events as possible, no matter how big or small. I’m excited about being a part of OUMS and I think that this could be our year to reinvigorate the Oxford music scene back to its former lively self. If the past year has taught us anything, it’s to live life and make the most of all the opportunities available to us, and what better and more musical place for that than Oxford!

Laura Kirkham – Secretary

Hi! I’m Laura and I’m a first year undergraduate reading Music at Univ. My first study instrument is the flute, but I also play the violin and piano. I’m looking forward to taking on the role of Secretary this year and, along with the other members of the OUMS Executive Committee, supporting the resumption of music making in Oxford as restrictions are lifted. As Secretary, I am responsible for sending out emails for the society and I’ll be involved in putting together the newsletter, so make sure to let me know if there is anything you would like to feature in it!

Jude Neanor – Communications Officer

Hi everyone, I’m Jude and I’m the Communications Officer for OUMS this year! I am a first-year music student at St Peter’s College, and I play the piano (although I compose more than I perform). As we (hopefully) begin to hold more in-person concerts and rehearsals, I will be making sure everyone is kept up-to-date with what’s going on. Make sure you follow OUMS on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to stay updated (all the links are in our bio).

Danny Riley – Social secretary

I am a second-year composer studying at St Hilda’s College. I primarily play trumpet and saxophone and frequently get involved with OUMS ensembles, most notably conducting the University Brass Band last year. I’m also the musical director of The Donut Kings, an independent big band based in Oxford which regularly performs at college balls and events.
As social secretary I believe it is incredibly important that we all find ways to remain sociable and connected during this lockdown, and will attempt to maintain the excellent social scene that Oxford normally provides. Moving forward I want to ensure that OUMS is presented as a fun and accessible community for everyone in Oxford, emphasising the diversity of our musical community through the ways in which we come together.

Trina Banerjee = Acces and Outreach Officer

Hello, everyone! I am Trina Banerjee, a second-year musician from Somerville College. I am a Hindustani classical singer from Singapore. As access and outreach officer, I hope to build better relationships between our partner schools and university students so that we can have a successful mentoring scheme in the near future. Also, taking inspiration from Somerville Music Society, I would love to incorporate some repertoire to expand our current canon so that we may be more inclusive about different kinds of music and various cultures.

Bruce Parris - Webmaster

Bruce Parris – Webmaster

Hi, I’m Bruce, a fourth year physic student at Lincoln college. I play  bassoon and contrabassoon in OUO and various other ensembles. 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 webmaster@oums.org.
