Our Projects

At the OMF, we believe that all music is good music and are passionate about producing exciting, participatory projects that allow people to engage in all kinds of music making! From 'recycled' orchestras and community operas, to children's violin lessons and adult choirs - our aim is to reach out to all corners of community so that everybody, not just those who can afford it, can reap the pleasures and rewards of making music together.
