Dr Leah Broad, Junior Research Fellow in Music, is one of the key speakers at Oxford Lieder's Spring Song Festival. The festival will take place in person from 17th to 20th March at Oxford’s historic Holywell Music Room and in the new concert hall at Trinity College.

This year’s Spring Song focuses on women composers, the countless gifted figures who vanished from the recital stages. Dr Leah Board will be speaking at a lecture-recital on 20th March, where she and other speakers celebrate and explore songs by four composers: Hedwige Chrétien, Margarete Schweikert, Elizabeth Maconchy and Johanna Müller-Hermann, showing how their music both fitted into and challenged expectations of song composition in their day. Click here to find out more.


Dr Broad, New Generation Thinker and Lecturer in Music at the House, spoke on BBC Radio 3 in November 2020, taking part in a week of special programmes across the channel to celebrate 10 years of the AHRC and BBC Radio 3 New Generation Thinkers scheme. She spoke with Andrew Macgregor about Sibelius and music from Finland and Estonia.

In November 2020 the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and BBC Radio 3 celebrated the 10th anniversary of the New Generation Thinkers scheme. Each year, ten of the brightest minds in the arts and humanities are chosen for the scheme, which brings their vibrant mix of research to BBC radio and television to capture the public imagination.
