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 Joycelyn Freeman who gave a brilliant performance of Liszt’s second concerto in last year’s Proms, to play Rachmaninov’s dramatic and passionate Second Piano Concerto. Jocelyn's pianism has been described as "outstanding", "brilliant", "sparkling" and "One to watch", including accolades from International Piano Magazine. Engagements have led her to perform on four continents, including television and radio broadcasts on BBC, Sky, S4C, ARD and RTL television. Collaborative highlights include performing with Bryn Terfel, Alfie Boe, Katherine Jenkins, Elin Manahan Thomas and Stuart Jackson.

We are also welcoming clarinet virtuoso Catriona Scott who gave a stunning performance of Mozart’s clarinet concerto in our opening concert in 2011.

A pre-concert serenade will be given from when doors open by our harpist Angela Moore who plays for the nation’s great orchestras – including the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; The London Philharmonic Orchestra; the London Symphony Orchestra; and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Angela is just as happy entertaining the general public as she is playing for Claudia Schiffer or HRH Prince Charles – and is equally at ease reinterpreting contemporary music as the classics.
