Sat 15 Jul, Merton College Chapel
Merton college was founded in 1264 and is one of the oldest colleges in Oxford. The T-shaped chapel dates from 1290 and is considered to be one of Oxford's finest. It was designed as a small-scale cathedral but the knave was never built, so the choir and the transcepts form a T-shape.
Capacity: 200 - 300
Facilities: No parking facilities, refreshments sometimes available in quad in summer, seating in the ante-chapel is at the back behind a carved screen from where the performers cannot been seen, disabled access.

The Strings of the Oxford Philharmonic
Yuri Zhislin director
Within the beautiful setting of Merton College Chapel, Co-concertmaster Yuri Zhislin directs The Strings of the Oxford Philharmonic in striking masterworks. Pastoral nostalgia flows throughout the English Renaissance of the early twentieth century, while Grieg, writing from the cooler terrain of Norway, issued a symphonic remastering of the Baroque suite, recalling the epoch past of Norwegian writer Ludvig Baron Holberg.
