As the Orchestra in Residence at the University of Oxford the Oxford Philharmonic is dedicated to the idea that classical music matters and that live performances have the power to transform lives. The American Friends of the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra believes that the essence of musical culture is the relationship between musicians and their audiences; and that music is a language that transcends all boundaries and brings people together.

The OPO and the AFOPO seek to encourage this relationship in the following ways:

Stimulate and inspire students, adults and musicians of tomorrow by connecting them to the best music ever written. We bring live and online concerts to communities around the world including those who otherwise would not have access to classical music and performances. We ensure that musicians and performers are compensated for their work and their time.
