The mystery of symphony: Chaptr & the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra

Is it the bassline? That steady heartbeat that drives the music forward, giving it life.
Or perhaps it’s the melody? Trills of arpeggios twirling above the grounding beat, breathing energy into it all.

No. What transforms music into a symphony is harmony. It’s the magic that bubbles up like fine champagne when the perfect elements blend together, striking just the right note.

Fine music is all about beautiful harmonies. That’s why we’re delighted to announce our new partnership with the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra.

Headed by visionary virtuoso Marios Papadopoulos, the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the UK’s leading orchestras. Industry pundits have described the orchestra as ‘thoroughly impressive’ (BBC Music Magazine) and ‘excellent’ (Gramophone Magazine).

We’re inspired.

Our work at Chaptr is founded on inspiring the audiences of our inspirational clients – making the Oxford Philharmonic a perfect fit.

“This last year has been immensely challenging for the music and creative industries, as well as for our audiences. For many, however, lockdown presented the opportunity to discover classical music, whether for the first time or rekindling their passion, and we have reached whole new audiences with our online concerts.

As we transition back to live performance, we want to make sure that our digital experience lives up to the quality of our performances, and with their expertise and knowledge of the creative sector, Chaptr are the perfect partner to help us get this right.”

– Marios Papadopoulos, Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra

The collaboration will see the Oxford Phil get the front-and-centre digital spotlight their world-class work so richly deserves. And we’ll be making it easy for their raving fans to find tickets to their favourite events.

“Music unlocks something in the soul – it can unleash a healing journey. Now, more than ever, we need music and the arts to heal the trauma of a year like no other. Creative art is at the heart of our culture, underpinning what it means to be British. We’re proud to be part of a much-needed balm in these post-lockdown months.”

– Joe Perkins, MD, Chaptr.

The new digital home for the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra will launch in late summer, 2021. Watch this space for more details as they unfold.
