James Jordan and James Whitbourn, Co-Directors
A unique partnership with St Stephen’s House, one of the halls of Oxford University, and Westminster Choir College, the Choral Music Institute is designed to provide instruction to all levels of conductors within a fully residential Oxford college.
The Choral Institute at Oxford is a residential course with meals taken in the college’s dining room and accommodation provided in the former monastic buildings of the 19th-century Cowley Fathers, now occupied by St Stephen’s House and much loved by C.S. Lewis, a former Fellow of nearby Magdalen College.
Participants will experience first hand an educational experience that is unique to Oxford University. That experience, one of total immersion in a residential college, will expose participants to an intense and exciting educational atmosphere. In addition to studying conducting and aspects of the choral art that will build musicianship in each participant regardless of prior experience levels, participants will become immersed in a community of musicians and faculty.
