2017 Spring Weekend of Song
3rd - 5th March 2017
Renowned recitalists, emerging talent, auditions for the next generation of star artists, masterclasses and more; the Oxford Lieder Spring Weekend of Song is a mid-year fix for song lovers.
This year features James Gilchrist and Anna Tilbrook across the weekend as they celebrate 20 years of performing together. We also welcome back star baritone Benjamin Appl, whose recital last year was a highlight of The Schumann Project, and mezzo Ciara Hendrick. The Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform attracts an ever-higher standard of applicant and now offers a chance to hear some of the very brightest of the UK's emerging talent, vying to be our next 'amabassadors for song'. The weekend begins with a joint composition workshop with the Faculty of Music, followed by a fascinating study event presented by TORCH, the Oxford Resarch Centre in the Humanities. The celebratory atmosphere of the Festival is also captured in the Spring Weekend, with pre-concert dinners at the Vaults & Garden on Radcliffe Square and opportunities to meet the artists.
