Oxford International Song Festival (formerly Oxford Lieder Festival)
Art:Song – Images, Words, Music
Well established as one of the world’s leading song festivals and the biggest in the UK, the Oxford Lieder Festival has been renamed, and is now called the Oxford International Song Festival. The new name better reflects the organisation’s activities: bringing song and singing to every part of the local and wider community through performance, participation, and learning, while emphasising music that is exciting, profound, and accessible to all.
The Oxford International Song Festival from 18 to 28 October 2023 (click here) will celebrate its first festival with its new identity in a fortnight that explores the rich connections between song, poetry and visual arts. An astonishing array of artists will appear in 76 events, encompassing the great works of the repertoire together with new works and exciting discoveries.
