"A sensational week: a wonderful opportunity for talented young musicians to immerse themselves in the world of song"
Sarah Walker CBE

About

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.

We are delighted to welcome Ann Murray, renowned as one of the great mezzo-sopranos of our time, and a highly-regarded teacher, to lead the week-long course during the 2017 Festival. She will be joined by guest tutors Roger Vignoles, Richard Jackson, Eugene Asti, and John Mark Ainsley.

“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.”
