Schools' Song Project & Concert

Oxford Lieder's annual workshops in local schools focusing on performance and composition and culminating in a free public concert at an inconic venue in Oxford, consistently bring out a remarkable level of creativity and skill from the young people involved. Details of the 2016 Schools' Project will be announced Summer 2016. If you are a primary school in Oxford and would like to register your interest in participating, please email [email protected]

2015 SCHOOLS PROJECT

  • "The Sheldonian Theatre is a proper place to perform, and I was quite nervous, but I did it.​"

  • "It is a rare opportunity to sing in the Sheldonian and be the first to sing in the Festival."

  • "Even though everyone put their own ideas in, it wasn’t messy, it was great!"

  • "This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the children. The best thing for me was that it was musically challenging and not ‘dumbed down’ for Primary Schools. It was amazing to see the whole class confidently singing in 5/4 with dynamics and expression."

  • "There has been a real buzz throughout for the classes taking part, not just from the children, and we hope that it will have a lasting impact here."
