Kellaway series

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 such as His Majestys Saggbutts and Cornetts, singers singers Mark Le Brocq and Stephen Varcoe, percussionists Colin Currie and the ‘O’ Duo, organists Stephen Titterington and David Goode, and ensembles such as Chamber Domaine and The Clerks; with programmes ranging from the Classical chamber repertoire to a 24-Hour sound installation and from traditional Persian music to new student compositions.

Tickets are free to college members; and are priced £6/£4 (concs)/£2 (students) for non-members; unless otherwise stated.

Tickets can be reserved in advance by emailing or calling 01223 337746.
