OMM organises an annual Orchestra Camp to cultivate Singapore's younger generations of musical talents and leaders. Currently into its 10th year, this camp provides a platform for like-minded young musicians from diverse backgrounds to collaborate in an orchestral setting. This unique experience enables participants to hone their musical craft, build new friendships, broaden perspectives and develop personal mastery, leadership and teamwork skills. This camp culminates in a concert where participants will showcase their hard work over the course of the camp.

Giving back to society plays an integral aspect of our OMM identity. As such, OMM aims to include a community engagement programme (CEP) in every camp. Through previous CEPs, OMM has managed to enrich children from kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, and VWOs (Arts Junior Montessori, Mayflower Primary School, CDAC etc.) by giving them an immersive musical experience. Camp participants and OMM musicians will facilitate interactive activities for the children, from introducing them to various sections of an orchestra, to bringing orchestral works to life through storytelling, song and dance, and even the opportunity to conduct the orchestra.

Over the past 9 years, over 500 musicians have participated in the camp for free. We appreciate your support in keeping this camp free to develop Singapore's young musical talents.

Every dollar donated is tax deductible and will be matched by the Cultural Matching Fund.

About the Charity

OMM is a Singapore-based symphony orchestra established in 2008, comprising over 140 highly-trained volunteer musicians. Although many have chosen careers outside of music, our musicians are dedicated to high standards of music-making and community work. Under the mentorship of Assoc Prof Chan Tze Law, Vice-Dean of the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, OMM has become an integral part of the Singaporean classical music scene and gained international repute.

OMM is an orchestra like no other. Beyond our musical ambitions, community work is an integral aspect of our identity. To date, OMM has assisted in fundraising over S$7 million for charitable causes, and our impact extends beyond that. One of our most well-attended initiatives is playwithOMM, which gives the public an opportunity to read standard repertoire with an orchestra. Much of our work also centers around youths, and a cornerstone of that is our annual Orchestra Camp in collaboration with the School of the Arts Singapore, which develops musical and leadership potential in youths.

OMM enjoys strong audience support at our performances, being recognised with the HSBC Youth Excellence Award for Musical Excellence, and being a regular recipient of the National Arts Council's support since our founding. OMM's ingenuity lies in our versatility, as we perform a wide repertoire of musical styles, from classical works to film music and beyond.
