St Anne’s College has a vibrant musical life that places outreach and development at the centre of the college’s musical values.  On these pages you will find information about Fellows’ outreach activities, and St Anne’s College partnership projects with OMEP (the Oxfordshire Music Education Partnership).

Professor Martyn Harry runs both the Music in the Community, and Opera and Music Theatre, FHS courses.  His most recent children’s opera, My Mother Told Me Not To Stare, toured nationally twice in theatres, concert halls and schools around the UK. 

Dr Alexandra Buckle has most recently spoken on BBC Radio 3 about Thomas Tallis, and been the Music Consultant for English Heritage’s new project on Henry II’s Great Tower at Dover Castle. She is currently on the committee involved with the reburial of King Richard III.  

Dr John Traill, Director of Music, regularly works in outreach, and he directs the OMEP   partnership project at St Anne’s.




St Anne’s College and the Oxfordshire Music Education Partnership present four unique projects:


The St Anne’s Camerata is a unique string orchestra at Oxford (a hybrid of the traditional Oxbridge college choirs), with professionals, scholars, and exhibitioners.



Beyond the Dots is an exceptional series of performance events that illuminate music. Events are usually free and always open to the public.



The Oxford Conducting Institute provides seminars, workshops, and short courses for conductors.

A programme that links University orchestrators with orchestras, choirs, and the Oxfordshire County Music Service, culminating in massed performances in Oxford and London.
