Oxford Philomusica is delighted to work alongside David Ross Foundation in the development of the music programme at Malcolm Arnold Academy in Northampton.
Oxford Philomusica is a professional symphony orchestra, which has achieved considerable success since its creation in 1998. It presents a year-round series of classical concerts at the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford; runs an annual International Piano Festival & Summer Academy; tours in the UK and overseas; and has a much praised community and education programme. In 2002 it became the first-ever Orchestra in Residence at Oxford University.
Work with young people is central to Oxford Philomusica's wide-ranging community programme: from working with the Faculty of Music and wider student community in Oxford, to FUNomusica and 'Children for £' concerts which seek to introduce young people to classical music at the earliest possible opportunity, to working with young people in special schools and in areas of social and economic deprivation. Making music both accessible and understandable is a key element of the orchestra's mission, and it frequently does this by taking music out of the concert hall and into the local community - in schools, community centres, hospitals and into areas with little access to music.
The foundation is delighted to work with Oxford Philomusica in support of its music outreach programmes.
