Olympias Music Foundation

Learn to Play Orchestra

Every Saturday, at 11am, the Kanaris Lecture Theatre at the museum comes alive with the sounds of the Olympias Music Foundation (OMF) Orchestra. Guided by the wonderful Jess Hayes, these young musicians are unleashing their creativity and learning how to play together as an ensemble. The OMF Orchestra will take the stage at the end of every term to showcase their hard work and artistic growth.

All the young talents in the orchestra are part of OMF’s Learn To Play – our flagship project that opens doors to the world of music for low-income families.   While the young musicians fine-tune their skills, their wonderful parents come together to form the Parent’s Orchestra. This collaboration fosters a sense of community and support within the OMF family.

You can help us care for our collections and bring joy and inspiration to people in Manchester and beyond

As one of the UK’s largest university museums, we care for over 4.5 million objects, with an internationally-important collection spanning from Archaeology to Zoology, and nearly everything in between. We work with communities, support university students and schools in Manchester and beyond and we are a free, inclusive museum for all. But we need your help. Every object we care for, exhibition, school visit and community event comes at a cost, and you can help make the museum as ambitious and impactful as possible.
