Come and Sing 2023

We are delighted to announce that we will be holding our annual and much-loved 'Come and Sing!' event on Saturday 25 February at the University Church of St Mary the Virgin, Oxford. Now in its ninth year, 'Come and Sing!' is a wonderful opportunity to join with the College Choir and Orchestra to make music in the beautiful surroundings of the University Church. This year’s programme has rousing Coronation music by Handel and Parry alongside Whitacre’s gorgeous Hebrew Love Songs, and the premiere of a new work by the Director of College Music, Dr Jonathan Williams. After the concert there will be a Music Banquet in our riverside Pavilion.

Booking deadline for the dinner is noon on Monday 20 February.
