Our aims are to:

  • Promote excellence and enjoyment in music through all our work
  • Widen opportunities to engage with music through education and performance
  • Increase access to and provide outstanding tuition for young organists through an internationally prominent programme of non-competitive residential courses
  • Stage performances from international, national and local artists and provide a platform for aspiring young artists of excellence
  • Provide cultural activities throughout the year across a range of musical genres
  • Encourage community and family participation and involvement in musical activities
  • Provide a useful educational resource to benefit others

We will achieve this through three strands of activities:

Oundle for Organists – a year round training movement, promoting access to the organ, and supporting young organists (beginner to university level) in their musical development.

Oundle International Festival – a professional music festival held each July in Oundle and the surrounding area, attracting a growing audience from the local community, and further afield. The programme includes jazz, folk and world music alongside classical repertoire, and related programming in other art forms.

Oundle Music Trust Community & Education Programme – programme of concerts (including Music in Quiet Places), workshops and projects in the Oundle area, which aims to extend access to, and enjoyment of, music through participation.

Oundle Music Trust works in partnership with schools, other organisations and music providers, locally, nationally and internationally.
