THE OXFORD CLERKS

A CAPPELLA SINGING

The Oxford Clerks first performed together in 2008, its members all choral scholars at either Magdalen and New Colleges, Oxford. They have since performed at over fifty private events, each with music tailored to occasions either through programming or by requests for newly-composed arrangements.
 
It is always our aim to create meaningful connections with the lives of our listeners, not simply to present a string of pieces: at a gala dinner for the RNLI in the ballroom of The Dorchester Hotel, all our pieces were about boats and rivers; for the birthday of a ninety year-old, all songs were from the 1920s, 30s, and 40s; at an event attended by royalty at Brown's Hotel on November 11th, we performed new arrangements of music from the World Wars. We have been disguised as silver-service waiting staff before beginning to sing, come out of hiding to surprise newly-weds with an arrangement of their first dance, and accompanied a groom in serenading his bride with her favourite song at a reception.
LATEST NEWS - The Oxford Clerks are putting on a rare public concert in London, on the evening of Thursday, 17 January 2019, from 8pm - 9:45pm. The venue called "The Other Palace", a studio theatre in Victoria, at 12 Palace Street, London, SW1E 5JA. It will be a mixed repertoire, from Byrd to the Beatles! Book tickets here.
