The Schubert Circle

The Schubert Circle is our close family of supporters.

Patron: Dame Sarah Connolly DBE

Your support as a Schubert Circle member will support world-class singing.

The Schubert Circle plays a crucial role in making our annual international song festival possible. Founded in 2014 to support our ground-breaking festival 'The Schubert Project', Schubert Circle members have enabled the Oxford Lieder Festival to grow from strength to strength, becoming an internationally-recognised centre for song.
