OKMT MUSIC MARATHON
**OKMT MUSIC MARATHON – 7th OCTOBER 2023 – A NON-STOP MUSIC EXTRAVAGANZA**
Duke Street Church, Duke Street, Richmond TW9 1DH
What a fabulous event our OKMT Music Marathon was!
A huge thank you to everyone who performed on the day – you were all wonderful. Thank you to Her Worship, the Mayor of LBRuT, Cllr Suzette Nicholson and Sir Vince Cable for attending, to Lord Lee of Trafford who sponsored the event, and to Cllr Nancy Baldwin who compered (and sang) so brilliantly!
Starting with our own OK Music School band and pupils, we then enjoyed superb choirs, recorder ensembles, piano pieces, guitar, opera and folk, including the wonderful DZVIN.CO Ukrainian Women’s refugee choir. Finally a beautiful performance from Richmond Orchestra with a truly moving finale of ‘Thank you for the Music’ where everyone joined in.
Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped on the day – we could not have done it without you! And thank you to everyone who sponsored the performers or bought a raffle ticket.
All raising funds for OK Music School, where playing music brings joy and pride, as young people with additional needs celebrate their achievements. We have raised a wonderful amount, but we always need more to meet demand. So please help us by making a donation here:
