Your support will help us do more....



Each year, OCM gives children, young people, and disadvantaged groups in our society the chance to explore and make music. We offer this for free to nurture creativity, confidence and joy in those who most need it.


“Young Women's Music Project members have benefited greatly from watching OCM's inspirational acts live. Every time I hear how enthralled the young women are.”

- Zahra Tehrani, Young Women's Music Project



We bring people together through wondrous and immersive sonic and musical events. We create magical moments in public spaces - in city squares, parks, museums, playing fields - because our work is for everyone, wherever you encounter it.


“You come to experience the unusual and inspired. As always I come away feeling rejuvenated and thoughtful.”

- Audience Member at Ring Out by Ray Lee



We are pioneering in our chamioning of astonishing artists that get people thinking and talking. Their ambitious work makes the seemingly impossible a reality; it gives us a space to reflect and grow.
