Terms of Use, as of January 9, 2017

Welcome to orbitalmusicpark.com (the “Website”). Orbital Music Park a Virginia limited liability company (“We,” “Us,” and “Our”), provides matching services (the “Services”) to connect musicians for purposes of building communities and enriching every culture.


We believe music is powerful magic. Music can heal. It inspires action. It speaks the truth. It fills our hearts with love and hope. It lifts us when we're lost and sad. It helps us process and express anger and rage. It helps us celebrate joy and wonder. It's the soundtrack of conflict and peace. This is why the world is connected through a rich tapestry of sounds, rhythms, songs. Anyone can make music. And each person who does can tap into that magic and create a spark of connection with others.


We believe all musicians are heroes. A few are world-famous and some are well-known locally. The vast majority are anonymous and disconnected. We miss their magic. Musicianship needs support and encouragement at every level and in every community on Earth. Young and old. Rich and poor. Every culture. Every color. Every language. Thousands of instruments, millions of voices. Dissonance and harmony.
