The Oxford University Jazz Orchestra are excited to present their 2020 project: World on a String. They’ll be collaborating with Oxford University Orchestra’s strings to provide an evening of high-quality jazz, from the well-known songs of Sinatra and Fitzgerald to premieres of new compositions and arrangements commissioned for the event. 

This concert will showcase the talents of some of the university’s best musicians, bringing together two of the Oxford University Music Society’s flagship ensembles.
Both have toured worldwide – most recently to Japan, Thailand and New York – and have a reputation for exciting and vibrant performances.
The ensembles’ alumni include British trumpeter Mark Armstrong, Canadian jazz vocalist Diane Nalini, saxophonists Carlos Lopez Real and Idris Rahman, and English National Opera conductor Steve Higgins (amongst many others).

World on a String will bring together an eclectic mix of music in this unprecedented collaboration between the two multi award-winning ensembles.


Doors open at 18:45 for the main concert and this is scheduled to end at approximately 21:30
