750th Anniversary Concerts & Services

The Anniversary Year saw a host of special concerts and services that showcased the College’s stunning new Dobson Organ, the specially-commissioned Merton Choirbook and the talented Choir of Merton College - the newest choral foundation in Oxford, already making waves as one of the city’s leading mixed-voice ensembles.

With over 55 world premières, concerts featuring soloists such as Sarah Connolly and Dame Emma Kirkby, as well a series of organ recitals by renowned international performers, the 750th Anniversary was a year to remember for musical excellence at Merton.
