We are proud to mark the beginning of New College's visiting artist series here at New College, kicking the series off will be the pianist Joseph Crane.

Joseph Crane is a pianist, educator and composer currently dividing his professional time between Oxford and London. He graduated from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2015, and went on to win both the Chopin category and the best performance at the Windsor Piano Competition. Joseph has played in several venues including Cadogan Hall, the Denis Arnold Hall, 49 Queen’s Gate Terrace (South Kensington) for the Vernon Ellis Foundation, St. Alfege Church and the Old Royal Naval College. His passion in repertoire lies with contemporary music and unusual repertoire. We are glad to welcome some of this unusual and modern repertoire to our programme here at New College for our latest series.
