Social DistanSong Day Eight: Joan Rodgers plus Live Q&A at 5pm

04 April 2020, 10:00am - 11:55pm

It's the last day of Social DistanSong! We know that nothing can replace the experience of live music - and how we all look forward to enjoying that again! - but we also hope that you've enjoyed what we've been able to send you over the week. At 5pm today, Oxford Lieder's Artistic Director, Sholto Kynoch, will do a live Q&A. This will be via YouTube, and you'll be able to watch it on this page. We'll post the link just before it starts, so refresh this page at 5pm to see it. If you have any questions, do email them (ideally in advance) to
In the meantime, Joan Rodgers, who would have been leading the Mastercourse over the past week, has sent us a short film introducing some of her favourite recordings. Watch this below, and the links to the songs she recommends follow that.
