Ticket price includes one drink.

Following her earlier recital with Julius Drake (Event 47), Birgid Steinberger returns in a different guise, accompanying herself on the guitar. She has a longstanding commitment to folksongs and her previous Festival events such as this have been immensely popular.

Enjoy a specially made cocktail or other drink as we round off a very special weekend.

Oxford Lieder Festival: 14 - 29 October 2022
