40 for 40: Music at Oxford celebrates 40 years with learning and participation campaign and exciting new season

Music at Oxford: 40 for 40
Music at Oxford presents an annual concert series in the Oxford's inspiring buildings and spaces. The forthcoming season celebrates their 40th anniversary. The first concert took place on 1 July 1983, and within a decade Music at Oxford (MaO) was the largest independent classical concert promoter in the UK.

In celebration of MaO’s 40 years of music-making, they have launched their 40 for 40 Anniversary Campaign which aims to raise £40,000 by the end of 2024, to be put towards the ongoing annual costs of the thriving Learning and Participation programme. Full details from MaO's website.

The 2023/24 season opens with soprano Nardus Williams and Europa Galante at the Sheldonian Theatre on 11 October 2023 in Nature's Voice, a programme of music by Purcell, Handel and Vivaldi inspired by the natural world. Later in the season, violinist Aoife Ní Bhriain and harpist Catrin Finch join forces for a programme inspired by their home countries of Ireland and Wales, whilst the Marian Consort present A Jacobean Christmas with music written for the Stuart court, and they will be joined by the Jericho Youth Choir and St Barnabas Choristers for three pieces as part of MaO's With One Voice Learning and Participation project, which sees schoolchildren from Jericho working with music leaders and members of the Marian Consort on different singing and composition projects throughout 2023-24. 

In February 2024, countertenor Andreas Scholl and his wife, pianist Tamar Halperin, give a concert at the Sheldonian Theatre as part of their residency as Visiting Fellows at Oriel College.
