Oxford Lieder was founded in 2002 to celebrate and rejuvenate classical song. The main focus of our activity is the Oxford Lieder Festival, which takes place over two weeks each October. The Festival brings many of the world’s best-known singers and pianists to Oxford, as well as showcasing exciting emerging artists. Our dedicated Learning & Participation programme engages people of all ages and backgrounds in high-quality creative activity. We aim always to enrich people’s experience of music and language, both through fruitful collaborations with other artistic institutions and through a wide-ranging series of study events, including talks, study days and symposia. Oxford Lieder was thrilled to win the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Chamber Music & Song for 2014’s The Schubert Project, the first-ever complete performance of Schubert’s songs and a transformational event for Oxford Lieder. The Festival has built on that success and has continued to grow in scope and renown since then. The Schumann Project in 2016 featured over 100 events, attracting some 12,000 visitors and widespread press attention. For more information, see our website www.oxfordlieder.co.uk.
