To book a place at Oxenfoord International please download the application form at the bottom of this page and let us know if you would like to be added to the mailing list for future updates.
Applications for the Masterclass, Song Cycle and Opera Scenes should be received no later than Friday 5th May 2017. Parts for the Opera Scenes will then be allocated in time to be studied and memorised. Please note that only advanced students will be accepted onto Opera Scenes and a recording (made within the last year and sent to the administrator) will be required from any singer not well-known to the organisers. Opera Scenes are allocated according to the variety and strength of applicants each year and previous involvement is no guarantee of being shortlisted.
All other applications should be received by Friday 23rd June 2017 and the balance paid by Friday 30th June 2017. To ensure you get your preferred selection of classes and accommodation it is advisable to apply as early as possible. Classes will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis and, due to very limited accommodation at Loretto School, bedrooms will be allocated according to the distance from your home address and the date your application is received. Following application, further details about the week will be emailed or posted by request.
