We are presenting the Singapore premiere of Wagner's epic Die Walkure (The Valkyrie) to the Esplanade Concert Hall in January 2020! This music drama brings together Nordic and Greek legends and created the foundation for the modern day epic, the Lord of the Rings.

Together with director Edith Podesta, conductor Chan Tze Law and and a cast of major international singers, we will transport you to a mythic world, featuring flying horses, a magic sword and the ring of power.

As an orchestra founded by Singaporeans, we have continuously tailored our concerts and programmes to effectively engage Singaporean audience members. Some of the innovative education and engagement initiatives we have pioneered include orchestra open houses, animated videos and illustrated booklets.

We hope to raise $10,000 to bring The Valkyrie to more audiences. Join us in making this a special experience for everyone! Every gift is valuable and a donation of any amount will help us go much further in our journey to inspire audiences, encouraging music makers from all walks of life.

* Eligible donations will qualify for a 2.5 times tax deduction, and dollar-for-dollar matching from the Singapore government, enabling your support to go even further.

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.
