We are delighted to have been awarded £210,639 as part of the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund, helping us to face the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and secure our future.
This grant is an essential lifeline for the Orchestra, and enables us to continue to provide work for our dedicated and hard-working musicians, as well as our team.
Our Founder and Music Director, Marios Papadopoulos, says:
“We are thrilled to have received this award from the Arts Council in recognition of the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra’s contributions to culture in the UK. Music plays such an important part in British culture, from entertainment to wellbeing and community. This grant allows us to protect the jobs of our musicians, and makes it possible for us to continue to bring music to everyone.”
With this grant, we will be able to release a series of streamed concerts to be enjoyed in the safety and comfort of your own homes, with plans to return to the concert hall as soon as it becomes safely possible.
Full details of the Autumn season will be announced in the coming weeks. Stay tuned – follow our social media, subscribe to our YouTube channel and turn notifications on to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
