33. Schools Project Concert

17 October 2019, 16:00 - 16:30

Directed and introduced by John Webb

Each year, Oxford Lieder works with local schools in an in-depth creative project where children, under the guidance of the inspirational workshop leader John Webb, write the words and music of their own song cycle. They take initial inspiration from a trip to the Ashmolean Museum and present the resulting composition in a free performance in the Ashmolean’s Atrium. Come and experience a wonderfully committed performance of some imaginative and energising new work.

John Webb


I am a freelance composer, animateur, educator, conductor and writer. My work aims to encourage creative participation in music making: to enjoy it as an enlivening group activity for all-comers, and one in which participants can discover their own creative musical identity.

This event is part of a series:
