Kellaway Concerts

The Kellaway Concert Series have been made possible by a generous bequest from the estate of the late Donald Kellaway, a Fellow of St Catharine’s College. The series showcases the best instrumental and choral music in the University and also brings to the College professional musicians to coach and collaborate with students.

In recent years, the series has presented large-scale works such as Bach's St John Passion and Monteverdi's Vespers, and hosted artists ranging from early music ensembles such as His Majestys Saggbutts and Cornetts and The Clerks, to solo performers such as pianist Philip Fowke and organists William Whitehead and Andrew Reid. The series also caters for eclectic musical tastes, regularly hosting world and contemporary music programmes, sound installations and jazz.  

Tickets are free to college members and staff; see individual concert details for ticket price.
