About One Found Sound
One Found Sound is a collaborative orchestra at the forefront of equitable and barrier-free music. Operating without a conductor or single artistic director, our democratic ensemble brings vibrant performances to creative and unexpected spaces. One Found Sound champions music that reflects the diversity of our community and is dedicated to supporting the creation of new works by diverse peoples.
Diversity, equity and inclusion are the core values that drive what we do. OFS strives to live up to our commitment to these values by developing systems for being conscious of bias during the hiring, promoting, and evaluation process of our leadership, musicians, and board of directors. We also recognize the need to expand our knowledge of the classical cannon to include works by composers who identify as Black, Indigenous, or as a person of color.
We commit to creating meaningful programs that showcase the contributions of the diverse peoples that make up our community. For more information about OFS, please visit our website at www.onefoundsound.org.
