Orchestras for All (OFA) believes that all young people should be able to access the life-changing experience of group music-making whatever their circumstances. Our aim is to address the inconsistent provision of high-quality music experiences across the UK in order to help disadvantaged young people realise their full potential and develop crucial life skills.
We work to address the problem of access for our beneficiaries, tackling all kinds of barriers – logistical, financial, geographical, personal and cultural – with the overarching objectives that:
young people will have increased access to high quality, consistent provision of ensemble music-making opportunities
young people will be better equipped with the life skills and self-awareness they need to achieve their aspirations
