Tue 4 Jul, Sheldonian Theatre
The Sheldonian Theatre was erected in 1664-8 to a design by Sir Christopher Wren. Its purpose was to provide an appropriate secular venue for the principal meetings and public ceremonies of the University, and this remains its purpose today. In addition the theatre has become a leading venue for musical concerts and recitals. Please note that tickets for concerts cannot be bought at the Sheldonian.

An international sensation, Lang Lang has inspired millions with his open-hearted, emotive playing, whether it be in intimate recitals or on the grandest of stages. Time Magazine included Lang Lang in the ‘Time 100’, the magazine’s annual list of the one hundred most influential people in the world, naming him as a symbol of the youth of China and its future. After his astounding first appearance with the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra in 2012, he returns to the Sheldonian Theatre in what promises to be an electrifying performance of Rachmaninov’s impassioned Second Piano Concerto.
