As a charity which works to encourage community integration through musical sharing, usually through face-to-face projects, we are eager to find ways to continue engaging and sharing music with OMF communities and online audiences through the COVID-19 crisis. With this in mind, we invited people to take part in the #OMF1MinuteMusicChallenge throughout March and April to spread a bit of hope and community spirit during these challenging times. Every day for 30 days, we released a a 1-minute video (submitted by musicians from around the world) and shared them with OMF communities online! Take a look at some of the amazing submissions!
Intro video music written and performed by OMF's Women's Voices Choir at People's History Museum earlier this month. Words by Maya Angelou - "Shine on me sunshine, rain on me rain, fall softly dewdrops and cool my brow".
