The City of Oxford Orchestra was founded in 1965 with a firm
commitment to provide live, classical music of the highest quality
to the widest possible audience. The Orchestra has played to
acclaim in most of the capital cities of Europe whilst also providing
all-year-round concerts in Oxford's beautiful, historical buildings,
in particular, Sir Christopher Wren's stunning Sheldonian Theatre.
Its summer festival of Baroque Music has become a magnet for
tourists from all over the world and its Christmas Concerto by
Candlelight is a highlight of the musical year.
