To book a place at Oxenfoord International please download the application form at the bottom of this page and let us know if you would like to be added to the mailing list for future updates.
Applications for the Masterclass, Song Cycle and Opera Scenes should be received no later than Friday 3rd May 2019. Parts for the Opera Scenes will then be allocated in time to be studied and memorised. Please note that only advanced students will be accepted onto Opera Scenes and a recording (made within the last year and sent to the administrator) will be required from any singer not well-known to the organisers. Opera Scenes are allocated according to the variety and strength of applicants each year and previous involvement is no guarantee of being shortlisted.
All other applications should be received by Friday 14th June 2019 and the balance paid by Friday 28th June 2019. To ensure you get your preferred accommodation it is advisable to apply as early as possible. Although a place on the course is confirmed following deposit payment, class selection is not guaranteed until an invoice has been issued. Due to very limited accommodation at Loretto School, bedrooms will be allocated according to the date your application is received. Following application, further details about the week will be emailed or posted by request.
