Oxford Song Young Artist Programme

The Oxford Song Young Artist Programme offers a range of high-quality training and performance opportunities for exceptional singer-pianist duos in the early stages of their careers. At the end of the Spring Song weekend, eight selected duos will be offered fully funded places on October’s Mastercourse, as well as professional engagements for Oxford Song and with our partners both nationally and internationally, culminating in showcase recitals at the 2025 Festival.

Our Young Artist Programme is generously supported by Jerwood Foundation and other charitable trusts and foundations.
