Meet our Tutor
Dr Suzanne Aspden, the Lecturer in Music at Lincoln College, is a University Lecturer in the Faculty of Music and a Fellow of Jesus College. She teaches music history, criticism and aesthetics in the Faculty and for Jesus and Lincoln Colleges; her research interests are in eighteenth-century opera, Handel, nationalism and identity politics.
Dr Aspden teaches Jesus and Lincoln students together. Because Lincoln and Jesus Colleges are just across the road from each other, the students of the two colleges share a lively musical life, joining with the third Turl Street college, Exeter, to run the Turl Street Arts Festival every year.
Music at Lincoln
Lincoln College offers a busy and varied music scene for anyone interested in playing or listening to music, regardless of their level of experience. From orchestral recitals to Open Mic Nights, there is something for everyone!
Performing opportunities are many, both in the College and, more widely, in the University. Lincoln College students, living in the heart of Oxford, are ideally placed to take advantage of all the city has to offer.
For further information on entry requirements, course structure, and for the performance diary and Music Faculty life, please consult the University's admissions pages on Music, or the Oxford University Music Faculty website.
Lincoln College Music Society
Lincoln College Music Society prides itself in being an active, inclusive music society, with something to offer for everyone! Lots of exciting events are scheduled for each term, and are outlined by LCMS Term Cards and Weekly Update Emails. Just some highlights include the Musical Revue, Oxmas Concert and Turl Street Arts Festival.
Our non-auditioning ensembles are fun and laid back, whilst maintaining high standards. These include Lincoln Chamber Orchestra, The 1427 Choir and the Jazz Group, which perform every term. More details on these ensembles can be found on our JCR webpage: http://www.lincoln-jcr.co.uk/sport
Alongside performances from our larger ensembles, we host student lunchtime recitals and a termly 'Jammin' Sesh' led by the Jazz Group. Many students also play or sing in the regular Open Mic Nights in Deep Hall.
The Lincoln College Musical Revue is a fantastic opportunity for students who want to get involved in Music and Drama in college, and runs in 5th week of every Michaelmas Term. Unlike any other musical in Oxford, the cast, production team and band consist entirely of Lincoln students, which is what we think makes it particularly unique. The production unites a wide range of students, from Freshers to Postgraduates, and is a great showcase of the talent Lincoln has to offer. Auditions are held in 6th Week of Trinity, and in 0th Week of Michaelmas for Freshers.
Turl Street Arts Festival
TSAF is one of the major art festivals in Oxford. Combining the power of all three Turl Street Colleges (Lincoln, Jesus and Exeter), this event never fails to disappoint, packing numerous concerts, productions, jazz nights, drawing sessions and more into 5th Week of Hilary Term. This academic year (2017-18), Lincoln are hosting TSAF, creating even more opportunities for students to get involved.
