Cities of Song

People, Places, Music

Welcome to the Oxford International Song Festival 2024. Across a thrilling fortnight (11-26 October) we welcome artists including Roderick Williams, Carolyn Sampson, Christoph Prégardien, Helen Charlston and Nicky Spence.

'Cities of Song' explores composers in the cities that inspired them, including Haydn visiting Oxford, Schubert's Vienna, Fauré's Paris, and more. We mark the anniversaries of Fauré, Schoenberg and Byron, and ten years after the start of our prize-winning Schubert Project, we continue to celebrate this seminal figure with our much-loved Schubert Weekend.
