The Downing Series

Welcome to the Downing Series

Established in 2019 by David Lowe, Director of College and Chapel Music, the Downing Series take place in the many beautiful music spaces of Downing College. The recitals feature outstanding artists in innovative programmes of many musical styles. Throughout our fourth season (2022-23), the Series will consist of concerts given by young artists and established artists, as well as masterclass(es) for talented students.

Past performers include lutist Matthew Wadsworth; baritone Gareth Bynmor John; singer Patricia Hammond and multi-instrumentalist Matt Redman; and actors/vocalists Sam Oladeinde and Justina Kehinde, together with MD John Reddel.

Details of the next Downing Series Concert can be found on the College’s Events page. Tickets are £10, £5 (concessions/students).
