Join us this October as Oxford Lieder, the UK’s biggest festival of song, marks its 20th year with its most ambitious programme to date.

This year’s Festival features more than 100 events, both in-person with a socially distanced audience and livestreamed online, building on the success of two previous online festivals.

World-class singers and pianists, alongside emerging stars, take to the stage for song recitals, complemented by piano, chamber and choral works and several world premieres.

An extensive series of Song Connections events forges links between music, poetry, nature, art, language and science, ensuring multiple access points to the world of song

Streaming tickets start at just £3, with a full Festival streaming pass, providing online access to every event, offering exceptional value at £165.

'All song lovers should buy a pass for the Oxford Lieder Festival... varied, rewarding, engaging.' The Observer, 2021
