inviting music
industry speakers

To connect Oxford to the wider Music Industry, both domestically and worldwide, we plan to bring music industry professionals to Oxford to give talks about a wide range of topics. These speakers come from a wide range of genres and specialist areas within the industry, and our members get access to all of these talks. We hope to use the Oxford Recording Society's platform as a springboard to create a forum for both discussion and networking in the music industry, and our speakers help us do this.
