Song Connections

Event Featured Image

Enjoy the whole festival live online for £165 with a Digital Festival Pass. All events will be available on demand after broadcast until 30th November, so you can catch up at a time which suits you.

This film explores the creation of Cheryl Frances-Hoad’s major new song cycle, Everything Grows Extravagantly, co-commissioned with the Oxford Botanic Garden (see Event 79). Cheryl provides insight into her collaboration with poet Kate Wakeling, her time as an Oxford Lieder composer, and her role as a Visiting Research Fellow at Merton College.

For our audience at home, we are delighted to present three specially made films, each with musical performances recorded exclusively for these films. Filmed by TallWall Media, they feature fascinating speakers and musicians, and explore the music, poetry and creation of song. They will be available from the opening day (8 October) until the end of November and are accessed via the Digital Concert Hall in the same way as all our livestreamed events.
