The OHMI Trust is delighted to announce that its 2021 Competition Awards and Tenth Anniversary Celebrations will take place on Saturday, 25th September.
The event is expected to attract musicians and representatives from musical organisations from around the world, who share a passion for enabling people living with disability to access and play the instruments they love.
The event will be live-streamed from 6pm BST and includes the following:
We’re happy to announce that British actor and disability advocate, Melissa Johns, will be hosting the event. Best known for her roles in Coronation Street, absorbing BBC drama Life, and, most recently, Celebrity Masterchef, Melissa will be presenting live from our Birmingham venue.
The live broadcast will allow us to share the celebrations with a global audience, reflecting the truly international nature of the competition entries over the years.

My dear readers, a massive apology to you all since I’m well aware I failed to post last month. In my defence, it has been a hectic and stressful four weeks. I’ve had several job interviews (one of which required a ridiculous number of skills’ tests to complete) and have started doing some tutoring work which has proven to be more difficult than I expected.
To make up for this, I plan on posting another longer blog post later in the month. As a little teaser for you, I’ll be talking about jazz and speaking to a disabled jazz musician.
So, look out for the next post in the coming weeks...
