Handel Messiah at SJE Arts

December 20 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm SJE Arts, 109a Iffley Rd

vOx and Oxford Sinfonia come together to play Handel’s Messiah in its original orchestration.


Founded in 1984, we are an amateur chamber orchestra of the highest standard. The orchestra does not have a fixed membership or a permanent musical director. This enables it to engage a wide range of accomplished musicians to direct and play in each concert. Many of our players are involved in music professionally, though not necessarily as performers.

We promote four concerts a year and some special projects, and specialise in accompanying choral societies. We have been involved in twinning concerts, fireworks concerts and concerts for charities.

We regularly offer young, up-and-coming soloists and conductors the opportunity to work with the orchestra.

We are a registered charity no 1005364.
