Who We Are
Olympias Music Foundation (OMF) is an award-winning music charity based in Manchester. We work to champion diversity in music – 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. Since 2015, we have delivered over 2000 free music lessons to 250 children in Manchester, engaging hundreds more through workshops and performances.
We’re proud to have received a number of regional and national awards for our work, including the Creativity in the Community Prize (Be Proud Awards 2019), Promotion of Equality and Diversity Prize (Manchester Culture Award 2018) and Grassroots Champion Award (Community Integration Awards 2017). We're also grateful recipients of support from Arts Council England, The National Lottery Community Fund, and a number of Trusts and individual supporters.
Thank you for a fantastic session! The children all got something out of it and the energy was great!
