OTAKAR KRAUS MUSIC TRUST (OKMT) was founded by Dr. Margaret Lobo in 1991 to provide music and voice therapy for children and young people with physical, psychological, learning, behavioural and emotional difficulties.
Music has a universal appeal, moving us at all levels of our being: body, mind and spirit. Its communicative power transcends verbal or physical barriers, creates a connection and unlocks creativity.
Music Therapy harnesses this power to enable people who find it hard to communicate through traditional channels to express and fulfill themselves. It opens a door towards a better quality of life.
We had a really lovely Summer Party on Saturday. A little concert by some of the Music School Pupils was followed by a great performance by the Community Choir and then for the first time both groups performed together – it was womderful to watch. Then there was food and with the lovely weather many sat outside enjoying the sunshine Then everyone joined in and danced at the disco. Thank you everyone who helped, contributed things for the stalls, performed – but mainly to everyone for coming – it was a great party.
