Whilst live music is still sadly unable to go ahead, Oxford University Music Society (OUMS) has attempted to bring the local and wider communities together through virtual music-making.
OUMS has created a virtual musical Advent calendar featuring over 70 performances from local schools, University students, and the wider musical community of Oxford. The calendar has been shared with care homes, hospitals, and hospices around the country and each day will feature 3-4 videos ranging from nativity play excerpts to college/a cappella/inclusive choirs' renditions of Christmas favourites, and from brass bands and swing bands to concert pianists.
We would love for you to join us on our musical countdown to Christmas and enjoy the impressive musical talent of the local community!
In sharing our calendar with the wider community we are aiming to raise £2,500 for Homeless Oxfordshire: the amount needed to provide three meals and a shower for every homeless person in Oxford City on Christmas Day. We would be extremely grateful of any support, be that in the form of a donation or by sharing our project.
