Oxford Proms in their eighth season feature Russian Classics plus the delightful concertino for clarinet by Weber and an opening overture by our resident composer Tim Perkins.

We are delighted to welcome back star pianist Jocelyn Freeman to play Rachmaninov’s dramatic and passionate second piano concerto after her brilliant performance of Liszt’s second piano concerto in last year’s proms, also clarinet virtuoso Catriona Scott who gave a stunning performance of Mozart’s clarinet concerto at our opening concert in 2012. 

Angela Moore, harpist for the Royal Opera and H.R.H. Prince Charles, will give a pre-concert harp serenade after doors open.
