The OHMI Trust Conference 7-8th September, Birmingham - Music and physical disability

TheOHMITrustTheOHMITrust Member Posts: 2 Listener
The OHMI Trust is a charity set up to enable people with physical disabilities participate fully in musical life.  The main focus of our attention is on adapted instruments and equipment as all standard musical instruments require 2 very dextrous hands to play.  This year we have our first ever conference in Birmingham.  We welcome anyone with a physical disability and all those who work with and support them.  Full details are available here.  On 7th September at 7pm there will also be a concert which will be an amazing opportunity to see a range of musicians perform at the highest level and also see the winners of the 2018 OHMI Competition announced.  Anyone in receipt of disability benefits is entitled to a 50% discount.  If you have any questions please email [email protected]

    I have a few questions to ask. Where is this conference being held? What services do you provide to physically disabled people?

    Who do I contact with my questions?
