Behold, the sea itself!

Vaughan Williams wrote A Sea Symphony, a piece extolling the virtues of the sea, with text by Walt Whitman.
It is a major piece for choir and orchestra, and we are delighted to be performing with two choirs – the East Oxford Community Choir and Headington Singers.  In total, around 80 singers will sing!  Our guest conductor will be James Longstaffe.

2022 was the 150th anniversary of the birth of the amazing English composer, Vaughan Williams. We are excited to tell you of these special concerts that the orchestra is performing in December.
