The OMF Digital Concert Hall

A space to share our performances through the lockdown

Throughout the past year, we have been finding innovative ways to keep making music together - be that through socially-distanced events, zoom performances or montage videos. In some cases, where it wasn't possible to perform, we used music as a stimulus for other activities, such as collaborative songwriting, puppet-making, theatre, painting and poetry. Here, you'll find a collection of our performances, as well as some of the other things we've made during the lockdown. Enjoy!

 

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Over the lockdown, 8 year old Children's Voices singer, Jasibe, has been working with Jo to 'perform' Somewhere Over the Rainbow together. Jasibe's mum has kindly given us permission to share this very special performance - we hope you enjoy!
