Schola Cantorum of Oxford is the University of Oxford's premier chamber choir. Founded by conductor László Heltay in 1960 as 'Collegium Musicum Oxoniense', Schola’s mission is to share the joy of choral music with our singers, our community of alumni and supporters, and with audiences in Oxford and around the world. We challenge ourselves to perform to the highest standards, providing outstanding musical training for young singers and conductors.
Schola comprises around thirty singers, most of whom are students at Oxford University. Studying a broad variety of subjects across the Humanities and Sciences, the choir’s members rehearse with their conductor Steven Grahl on Monday evenings during Oxford University term, and regularly perform in Oxford and elsewhere.
