Welcome to Out There Music Bristol!
Founded in 2007 by musician, songwriter and conductor Tom Jones, OTM Bristol is a unique composition of choirs and orchestras.
Tom was born and bred in Bristol and the city has remained close to his heart and a constant source of inspiration. A young professional musician with a vibrant style, Tom runs, directs and arranges much of the music for all of his choirs and orchestras.
From one original choir of just twenty, the OTM Bristol family has grown to over 250 members who all enjoy being part of the North and South Bristol Community Choirs, Chamber Choir, Orchestra and Bristol Children’s Choir. The groups rehearse individually and enjoy coming together every year for fantastic sell out concerts.
A Powerful Force for Good
The philosophy of OTM Bristol is all about getting people ‘out there’ and using music as a positive force in their lives. OTM Bristol is inclusive and aims to break down the barriers surrounding access to music whilst always striving to achieve the highest standards possible.
Something for Everyone
At the heart of OTM Bristol are two large and lively non-auditioned Community Choirs that are open to absolutely everyone! The Chamber Choir is a smaller auditioned choir and the Orchestra is open to anyone over the age of twelve who plays an orchestral instrument at grade 5+ standard. Last but not least, the Children’s Choir is open to all children from any school in Bristol aged from seven to thirteen.
