St John’s Wood Church

St John’s Wood Church, London NW8

With Sebastian Comberti, Selma Gokcen, Andrew McGee, Susan Sheppard, Raphael Wallfisch, John York and board members of the London Cello Society.

Remembering Keith Harvey celebrates the life and work of our co-founder and chief inspiration for the London Cello Society. As one of the fathers of English cello playing, his encyclopaedic knowledge of the cello and cellists, his association with the leading figures of his time and his exquisite musical sensibilities made him one-of-a-kind. Keith Harvey will be remembered on this occasion by his close friends and associates, who will share music, stories and some of his remarkable discography. We invite you to join us as we honour our colleague and great friend to the Society.

No tickets will be sold for this event but kindly book your place/s by clicking the ‘Book Event’ button above.

Suggested donation on the door is £15 for adults and £5 for students.
