School Concert in Oxford Centre
St Michael at the North Gate, Cornmarket Street
Thursday 6 June 10.20am
Bach to School's concerts in 2019 celebrate the 200th birthday of Queen Victoria. As well as being an iconic British monarch, political powerhouse, accomplished musician and mum of nine, Victoria was a trailblazer, early tech adopter and culture vulture. Step into Victoria's dainty shoes and hear the world as she did through our soundtrack to the Victorian era. This special series will take you inside the palace walls with music from the Queen's favourites, Mendelssohn and Strauss, into the Savoy Theatre of Gilbert and Sullivan fame, and on to the cobbled streets with songs from the Victorian Music Halls.|
Further details of the programme will be announced soon!
|Situated right in the heart of Oxford on the busy shopping street of Cornmarket, St. Michael's was originally built in the Middle Ages. The Saxon tower, which dates from around 1050, is predicted to be the oldest surviving structure in Oxford. It contains Elizabethan silver, a 19th century chiming clock and the prison doors of the Oxford Martyr's!|
