Kellaway Concerts

The Kellaway Concert Series at St Catharine's offers a diverse range of music, from folk and jazz to historical and contemporary classical.

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. 

All concerts take place in Chapel and last one hour. Concerts will also be live-streamed and available for a period after the performance, by agreement with the artists.
