A Musical by Neil Gooding. This lovely family toe tapping music is for all ages. From the era that brought the world The Rubik's Cube, Max Headroom and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes the "totally awesome" musical Back To The 80's. In the style of movies such as Back To The Future, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Karate Kid, Back To The 80's is a nostalgic romp through the greatest hits of the decade. Back To The 80's tells the story of the senior class of William Ocean High School as remembered through the eyes of now 30-something Corey Palmer. 17-year-old Corey is madly in love with his next-door neighbor, Tiffany Houston, one of the coolest girls in the school. However, she is too busy mooning over Michael Feldman, the hottest guy around. Michael and his friends are athletic and good-looking - the kind of guys that Corey and his two best friends dream of being. However, while they may not be the coolest guys in school, they are still one up on Feargal McFerrin III, whose best friend is his computer, and who believes the crazy notion that one day CD's will replace cassette tapes.

Cost: 
£15 (other ticket options available) / £95 Festival Pass

Presented in association with SWAP’ra

This year’s Spring Song focuses on women composers, the countless gifted figures who vanished from our recital stages. Over the course of four lecture-recitals, with an array of exceptional artists curated and led by the ever-brilliant Natasha Loges, we will celebrate and explore songs by four composers: Hedwige Chrétien, Margarete Schweikert, Elizabeth Maconchy and Johanna Müller-Hermann, showing how their music both fitted into and challenged expectations of song composition in their day. We will also be launching the Forgotten Voices resources about women composers on the Oxford Lieder website.

Part 1: Margarete Schweikert, 11.30am-12.30pm
Natasha Loges speaker
Kate Kennedy speaker
Kitty Whately mezzo-soprano
Keval Shah piano

Margarete Schweikert (1887-1957) began composing as a child and her works, including songs, had their first major outing at a concert when she was just 17. She wrote at least 160 songs, setting a wide range of poets. This lecture recital features songs by Schweikert and by Hugo Wolf.

Part 2: Elizabeth Maconchy, 4pm-5pm
Natasha Loges speaker
Kate Kennedy speaker
James Gilchrist tenor
Keval Shah piano

Denied a scholarship from the Royal College of Music for being a woman who ‘will only get married and never write another note’, Elizabeth Maconchy (1907-1944) became one of the most substantial and respected composers of her time, with a large and important body of songs. This lecture recital features songs by Maconchy and by Benjamin Britten.
