Oxford's finest set to perform at Bath Abbey
Two of Oxford's great musical institutions will join forces to perform in Bath Abbey on Thursday, July 19, from 7.30pm.
Oxford's acclaimed professional orchestra will make its debut in the city with a glorious Baroque programme which includes Bach's Magnificat, performed by the Choir of New College.
Oxford Philomusica was founded in 1998 by the international pianist Marios Papadopoulos.
In 2002 it was appointed as the first Orchestra in Residence at the University of Oxford.

Today it presents an acclaimed year-round programme of classical concerts featuring visiting international soloists at its home venue of Wren's Sheldonian Theatre and on tour.
One of the truly great British choirs, New College Choir has for 35 years been under the directorship of Edward Higginbottom, who has worked tirelessly to achieve the global reputation it has today.
He will conduct the boys and men of the choir in the Bath concert.
Bach's great Magnificat, performed in such an appropriate setting, will be complemented by three contrasting concertos, performed by the outstanding Soloists of Oxford Philomusica.
Bach's Third Brandenburg for strings will be framed by two fine examples of the musical inventiveness of Bach's contemporary, fellow German and friend, Telemann: the splendidly ceremonial trumpet-dominated Concerto in D and a Concerto in E for the delightfully intimate trio of flute, oboe d'amore and viola d'amore.
Tickets, costing £10, £15, £20 and £28, are available from Bath box office on 01225 463362, or at www.bathboxoffice.org.uk.
