Daytime Ensemble Concerts
Students taking part in the Solo Lieder Ensembles and Solo Italian Ensembles Classes may be chosen to perform in two daytime showcase concerts as detailed below.
Informal Concerts: 4.15 Concert Series
Taking place each afternoon at 4.15pm (with the exception of Sunday and Friday), these informal concerts will provide a more relaxed performance setting during the course. Students will be able to sign up from the day before and the allocated accompanist will be detailed on the sign-up sheet (although students may chose another pianist who they have already rehearsed with if they are available).
Student Showcase Concerts: 7.30pm
All students not shortlisted for the Public Masterclass and Song Cycle class will be allocated to perform in either the Monday, Tuesday or Thursday Student Showcase concerts in advance of the course. The list and order of repertoire will be put on the Music School notice board by 5pm that day. This year we would like all students to have at least one piece memorised and ready to perform at the start of the week. Please bring suitable dress appropriate for your allocated evening performance.
Be sure not to miss Linda Ormiston’s mid-week Lollipops concert, featuring students from the Cabaret Class, followed by a traditional Scottish Ceilidh.
The Chapel Concert, featuring students from the Early Music classes and Solo Oratorio Ensembles Class, is a real highlight of the course and many students take part in the Oxenfoord Choir; rehearsing between 5pm-6pm each day and performing a range of choral repertoire in the beautiful setting of the School Chapel.
The course culminates in the Opera Scenes performance – a high point of the week for many. Details of all concerts are as follows:
