Young Artist Platform Auditions

19 May 2012, 2:00pm - 8:45pm

£5 one recital / £8 any two recitals / £20 day pass - on the door only.

With the generous support of Jesus College & the Kohn Foundation, trufflehunter and the Jean Meikle Music Trust, we once again hold auditions to find this year’s Oxford Lieder Young Artist from the new generation of outstanding young performers. We are delighted to welcome the renowned soprano Sophie Daneman as our adjudicator.

The winning duo will act as ambassadors for song, being awarded a series of recitals around the country. Each shortlisted duo performs a 40-minute programme. The standard last year was exceptional; exciting young professionals one and all.
