Ralph Vaughan Williams was enchanted by the beauty of traditional melodies and folk tunes. The composer’s Fantasia on Christmas Carols sees him transform those tunes into something new, something festive and something uniquely atmospheric. If the Fantasia celebrates beauty in restraint, then there’s plenty of jubilant fare in our Christmas Celebration to raise the spirits. The Orchestra and Concertmaster Natalia Lomeiko are joined by Roderick Williams, two of Oxford’s finest chapel choirs and a guest from Cambridge – the King of carols himself, John Rutter. 

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21:45

Tickets: £45 £35 £25 £15
