About Us


Oxford Lieder exists to promote and celebrate song. The centrepiece of each year is The Oxford Lieder Festival, an extravaganza of song now well established as the leading festival of its kind in the UK. Founded in 2002 with a series of seven concerts on the songs of Schubert, the Festival now presents 30-plus concerts given by many of the world’s leading interpreters of the song repertoire. The Festival also includes many talks, workshops and masterclasses, and other concerts take place throughout the year.

There is also an emphasis on finding and nurturing outstanding new talent, and as well as many Festival concerts given by emerging artists, Oxford Lieder also runs the Young Artist Platform, sponsoring song recitals by exceptional young professionals in music clubs around the country. An extensive education programme in local schools and numerous masterclasses take place throughout the year.
