As of this year, ManningCamerata has moved to Oxford! We have partnered with SJE Arts and are developing an annual programme of events based at St John the Evangelist Church. Bringing excellent, first-class musicians and music to the city, with a focus on 'sacred music in sacred spaces', and incorporating associated arts. We're also helping support the Church with its restoration fund and raising its profile as one of Oxford's most exciting arts destinations.

Performances will be given with rising vocal and instrumental stars in tandem with World class performers leading on to special events and community outreach.

The ManningCamerata is an advocate for the re-appraisal of the British music opus and a re-energising of the Anglican Orchestral-Choral tradition.

""It's time for the Manning Camerata to crack open the launch party champagne ... a musical vision worth busting a gut to realise""

Jessica Duchen, Classical Music Magazine

"The challenge is to present the great music in a way that will open up to today's new audiences. Peter is eminently placed to rise to this challenge."

Lord Smith of Finsbury, former Culture Minister
