OCM is a charity dedicated to supporting artists to inspire audiences.

We do this in various ways that include:

  • Helping artists to realise their ideas and dreams by finding funding, supporting them through the creation process and presenting their work.
  • Bringing exciting and ground-breaking new music to Oxford and the UK from around the world, including supporting emerging artists from the UK.
  • Creating opportunities for schools and community groups to work with world-class musicians, bands and composers.
  • Giving students and young graduates training in events management, marketing and other aspects of the music business.

Each year the inspiring events we present and our education/outreach work requires a considerable amount of extra fundraising. Donating to OCM helps us to continue our work and to enrich people’s lives – audiences, musicians and local communities.

Have a look around our website for details of projects, events and areas of our work. OCM is funded and supported by Arts Council England, PRS for Music Foundation, Oxford City Council and Oxford Brookes University, but many of our events and projects simply wouldn’t happen without additional fundraising. If you’d like to make a donation or would like to specify which area of our work you would like to contribute to, do feel free to get in touch directly by email at jo@ocmevents.org
