return to the Foundation homepage
Performing without a conductor, twenty of the world’s leading string players from 15 different countries will come together to promote peace. This will be the first of only 3 performances world-wide featuring the orchestra in 2019
On UN World Peace Day, Rotarians in Oxfordshire and the Thames Valley in collaboration with The World Orchestra for Peace are proud to present The Oxford Concert for Peace.
Join us for an evening of classical music from a global orchestra.
All the first violinists are concert masters in their own right and as such each piece will be lead by a different 1st violinist, so there will be no conductor which is very rare.
- Eine Kleine Nachtmusik K525 W.A. Mozart
- Holberg Suite Opus 40 Edvard Grieg
- Serenade for String Orchestra Opus 20 Edward Elgar
