Support the future of Oxford Lieder

Fundamental to our world-class programme (read more below) is the support of the Friends of Oxford Lieder and The Schubert Circle, alongside Trusts and Foundations. Even with capacity attendance, ticket sales can cover only 35-40% of overall costs, so we are completely reliant on your generosity.

Building on the tremendous success of The Schubert Project in 2014 and 2015's festival 'Singing Words: Poets and their Songs', this is an exciting time for Oxford Lieder. The range and scope of events at the Festival is expanding, the Young Artist Platform is increasingly becoming a national platform for song, and more people than ever are attending and taking part in our activities. Future plans include The Schumann Project in 2016 and the complete Mahler songs in 2017. Beyond that there are plans for residencies at Kings Place in London and elsewhere, and other creative developments in the future, dependent as ever on financial support.

We need your help each year to make all this happen. Please join us as a Friend or Schubert Circle member and become part of Oxford Lieder’s success story. I look forward to getting to know you at future events.

Thank you in advance for your kind support,
Sholto Kynoch
Artistic Director of Oxford Lieder


Gift Aid gives us an extra 25p for every £1 you donate.

The Gift Aid scheme allows Oxford Lieder as a charity to claim a refund on tax the donor has paid on the money given. If you are a U.K. taxpayer and wish to make your donation through Gift Aid, we can claim from Inland Revenue an extra 25 pence for each £1 you give.

This means that £100 can be turned into £125, without costing you more. You must be paying sufficient Income tax and/or Capital Gains tax to cover your donation. Other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. Higher rate taxpayers can claim partial tax relief on each donation.

So, to increase the value of your donation, please Gift Aid it. Please complete our Gift Aid declaration confirming that you are willing for us to recover the tax, sign and date it, and either return it by email to: [email protected] or post it to: Oxford Lieder, 6 Holyoake Road, Oxford, OX3 8AE.
