It is our firm belief that music should be available for all young people regardless of background We are very grateful for the support of our sponsors and patrons in enabling us to bring the exciting atmosphere of the Festival to so many every year.

In addition to events, there will be a limited number of tickets available for every concert at the festival for under-25s, thanks to the support of the CAVATINA chamber music trust. To request a free ticket, please contact Do get in touch early to avoid disappointment.

Beyond the Festival, our Education Manager Julia Roderick is organising an interactive song-writing project to bring inspirational music making to young people from three Oxfordshire Primary schools. It will engage with some of the Festival themes and is intended to kick-start a sustainable programme of musical engagement with the local education community.

Our education-programme will be announced shortly.

“It is not very often that you go to a concert and feel its physical and emotional impact. But that is what happened to students and staff at d’Overbroeck’s who last week had front-row seats for a spellbinding performance of Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence.”
Phil Purvis, d’Overbroeck’s Director of Music
