Happy New Year from everyone at the Somerville Music Society! We had an enjoyable Michaelmas Term of 2015 with great audiences at our Remembrance Concert, Jazz Concert and Christmas Cabaret organised in conjunction with the Principal’s Office. We hope to continue the trend with this term’s programme of events, which have been added to our events page. There are a few more things to be added to our programme in due course as we finalise details, but for now we hope you will writing us into your diary!
Next Sunday evening we will be putting on a Remembrance Concert in The Chapel at Somerville College. The programme will feature a selection of pieces appropriate to the occasion by Vaughan Williams, Butterworth, Bach and others performed by leading musicians from Somerville and Oxford. The event is free, and open to all.
We do hope you will be able to join us next Sunday for this poignant occasion.
We are delighted to announce that this year sees the birth of Somerville College Orchestra!
For more information, and to find out how to get involved, visit the Orchestra page.
Our first committee meeting will be on the 15th October at 3.30pm in Park JCR. We do hope as many Somervillians as possible will come along, especially freshers, so we can get the year of music at Somerville off to a good start!
We are also pleased to welcome conductor Hilary Davan Wetton (details on the Contact and Links pages) to the Somerville music community as Senior Music Associate. His experience and expertise will be a great help in producing an exciting programme of concerts and musical events throughout the year!
We are pleased to welcome you to our new website!
We thought we would kick off the 2015 – 2016 academic year by giving our website a revamp. The main aspects of the site are now finished, but keep checking back as we update it with more information over the coming weeks.
Thank you for visiting.
