We create unique, shared-learning experiences for aspiring singers and accompanists
“In the midst of a diary of recitals and much travelling and time in the recording studio, Oxenfoord is one of my favourite weeks of the year. In 1980 I joined as a staff pianist alongside my late mother Hester Dickson, and have been Artistic Director since 2005. It is because of this longstanding connection that I enjoy returning each year and bringing together a staff of the best singers, teachers, coaches and accompanists, working in conservatoires and performing at the leading recital halls and opera houses. Each year we offer places to an inspiring mix of 90 students, at various levels of ability and background, who bring their unique skills and performing experience to share with others.” Malcolm Martineau, Artistic Director
