OMP’s 2,000sf test location - a pop-up facility in an industrial warehouse - served 600+ members from Feb 2019 - Sept 2022. OMP’s current focus is development of a flagship facility in Richmond, with ten rehearsal rooms, performance spaces, instrument collection, and an iconic nightclub with kitchen and bar. The larger physical space will support collaborative workshops, curated jam session experiences, and performances.
Orbital Music Park is a diverse, inclusive community dedicated to providing a harassment-free musical experience for everyone. OMP members represent the full rainbow of genders, ages, sexual orientations, disabilities, physical appearances, body sizes, races, ethnicities, political views, music skill-levels, musical styles, and spiritualities. OMP is committed to the health, safety, welfare of each of its members and staff and will not tolerate unreasonable, threatening, obscene, harassing, indecent, or illegal behavior.
OMP's code of conduct has three rules:
(1) Be cool - OMP is the place for support and kindness. Critique must be requested.
(2) Listen: Be mindful of what other players are doing. Be mindful of dynamics. It's OK to not play - music needs silence, too.
(3) Courage: The good stuff is beyond your comfort zone. Make mistakes. See rule #1.
