The VOS and OMM Community Impact Programmes are organised by Voices of Singapore with support from the Orchestra of the Music Makers. These programmes aim to make a difference in the lives of three main target groups, namely Vulnerable, At-Risk and Underprivileged Children and Youth, Children with Special Needs, and Seniors with and without dementia through music and choral participation.
About Voices of Singapore:
Founded in 2019, Voices of Singapore aims to empower and inspire Singaporeans to sing, create, learn and experience through choral participation. As the nation's largest singing organisation, Voices of Singapore has over 20 programmes ranging from award-winning choirs to community and corporate programmes. The company is also a registered arts charity and conducts both local and global impact programmes that aim to make choral singing accessible to people from all walks of life.
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.
