"A sensational week: a wonderful opportunity for talented young musicians to immerse themselves in the world of song"
Sarah Walker CBE
The Mastercourse reflects Oxford Lieder’s commitment to cultivating the next generation of song performers. The course offers students the chance to immerse themselves completely in song, working with leading professionals in a welcoming, supportive environment, and attending concerts given by world-class artists.
In light of the cancellation of Spring Song, the 2020 Mastercourse was unable to run. We will release details about the next Mastercourse once available.
Please contact Kate Swinburne-Johnson for further information or to be notified of updates.
“The Mastercourse was such a special experience, and one that I will never forget. To spend time in beautiful Oxford, totally immersed in music-making, under the guidance of internationally renowned musicians, and then being able to experience stunning concert performances in the evenings – it was a dream week!”
“This has been one of the richest musical experiences of my life.”
“I cannot thank you all enough for this wonderful experience. To be in such a magical place as Oxford and to be touched by so many brilliant musical minds and teachers in such a short time is absolutely incredible. It has been an inspirational experience.”
