Who are Olympias Music?
Winners of the Creativity in the Community (Be Proud Awards 2019) and Promotion of Equality and Diversity (Manchester Culture Award 2018) awards , Olympias Music is a charity which champions diversity in music. Since 2015, we have delivered over 1400 free music lessons to nearly 200 children in Manchester, engaging hundreds more children and adults through workshops, performances and concerts in the community.
From violin lessons for children on free-school meals, to community choirs for vulnerable BAME women and school children, we believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to participate in music-making and engage with music, regardless of background or income, and that these encounters can be life-changing.
