Oxford’s premier mixed voice choir
We have reluctantly decided to postpone our June 20th concert of music by Fauré and Duruflé, until the latter half of September.
New guidance from Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, published on 18 May, limits indoor singing to just 6 people. DCMS guidance will not change before Stage 4, scheduled for 21 June.
When it becomes possible, the Oxford Bach Choir will video stream a concert of Fauré, Cantique de Jean Racine, and Duruflé, Requiem.
The performance will be at Oxford’s Sheldonian Theatre and will include readings by Alice Oswald, Oxford University Professor of Poetry.
The concert will be dedicated to the memory of all who have died and those who have lost loved ones during the pandemic. The free concert is also a celebration of the work of Oxford’s scientists and health care professionals, who have made such exceptional advances against Covid-19.
