Orquestra Sem Fronteiras | Orchestra Without Borders

Our mission is to reduce social and cultural inequalities through music.

Our vision is a fairer society where culture is accessible to everyone, regardless of their geographic location.

Our work

OSF supports young musicians’ talent in inland Portugal and Spain. We do this by fighting the abandonment of music teaching and rewarding academic excellence through concerts, music education, and grant giving.

We also exist to spread access to culture, and for this we work across dozens of localities in the countryside, offering free concerts, open rehearsals, and pedagogy & introduction to music for local people.

We champion values of cooperation and international integration, combining Portuguese and Spanish musicians side by side.
