NFMC Biennial Convention
June 20-24, 2017 at the Crown Plaza Hotel
located in Downtown Dayton, Ohio
Hosted by OFMC
Theme: Music…Our Source of Energy and Inspiration
Hello and welcome to the Ohio Federation of Music Club’s web site. I hope you are able to navigate the web pages easily and find the information you seek.
OFMC is a part of the National Federation of Music Clubs, the largest non-profit organization in the world dedicated to Music Education and the promotion of Creative and Performing Arts in the U.S.
2016 marks our Centennial Year. We are looking forward to our big Centennial Celebration during our state convention on August 11-13 at the Holiday Inn in Fairborn, across Wright State University. If you are not yet a member of the Ohio Federation of Music Clubs, please consider joining. The only requirement is that you are a music lover who believes in the importance of educating our youngsters in music. If you have a special musical talent, you will enjoy belonging because one of our mission is to support our local musicians. Many of our free concerts feature our very talented young performers, college music majors from our affiliated schools, as well as members of our senior clubs throughout Ohio.
Our goals are to share music by musical outreach to our communities, schools, churches, hospitals and nursing homes, to promote music and music education in Ohio, and to expose Ohio children to music. Our Foundation offers scholarship assistance for our young musicians such as college students and the young children who are learning how to play an instrument. We also offer scholarships to our post college members who are pursuing a master’s degree or doctoral program in music.
I urge you to join the local affiliated club near you. If you do not have a local club, perhaps you and your music friends start one. I will be happy to help you start a new club. E-mail me at Christy@ofmc.org My theme as president of the OFMC states that music may bring “peace and harmony”. This theme can inspire us all as OFMC celebrates its Centennial.
In Music, peace and harmony
