Everyone is welcome to join our OUMS community, though we try to keep the people we work with local to Oxford and Oxfordshire. If you are interested in your organisation joining the community, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over the pandemic, dozens of our members recorded music individually and in small groups. The performances, as well as our ensembles’ virtual performances, were sent to a number of local primary and secondary schools, as well as care homes and community centres. Videos were well received by staff, pupils, and parents alike.
Building on our pandemic links with local schools, the outreach team produced a fantastic musical advent calendar. With performances by members, alumni, schoolchildren, community and professional choirs, the project raised over £2000 for Homeless Oxfordshire, as well as many people’s spirits!
