Welcome to the JdP Website
The Jacqueline du Pré Music Building is one of the most exciting music venues in Oxford. Based at St Hilda's College, it is home to a professional Concert Series, regular Lunchtime Recitals, educational events, including family Cushion Concerts, community events, including Moving Music concerts for people with dementia, and a wide range of university functions, theatrical productions, art exhibitions and conferences. The building also contains five practice rooms and a recording studio available for hire.
2014-2015 JdP Concert Series
This year’s 20th anniversary programme maintains its focus on chamber and instrumental repertoire that has been a key part of the JdP since its inception, featuring concerts by Steven Isserlis (JdP Patron), Nick van Bloss, Michael Collins and the outstanding Belcea Quartet, returning to the JdP on Sunday 25th January as the culmination of our celebratory weekend, which profiles the full range of what we currently do.
This season we build on the success of our Family Cushion Concerts by mounting the JdP’s first-ever Christmas Pantomime, Cinderella Green The Recycling Queen; and our contemporary music series MASH is also proud to host the UK’s first-ever national Electronic Music Prize, along with a range of innovative contemporary classical programmes such as Joby Burgess, Manifesto, MASH Marathon and the Brodsky Quartet.
