Kensington and Chelsea Music Society 2019-20


Owing to the COVID-19 situation, and the recent briefings by the UK government, we have no option but to cancel our March concert. Our April and May concerts are not cancelled at this stage, but we will be assessing these over the next few days. If you are a season ticket holder, or a ticket holder for one of these concerts, we will be in touch with you. If for any reason this has not happened, please get in touch with us via the contact page. The next few months will be difficult for everyone, but especially those who work in the arts, and we will be endeavouring to rebook any cancelled artists for our 2020-21 season.


2019-20 will be KCMS’s 59th season, and we are delighted to present another superb series of concerts. We have, as always, an outstanding mixture of new and established artists, performing an immensely varied and exciting programme of chamber music, song and choral works from the 15th century to the present day. Owing to the renovation of Leighton House in 2020, we will be holding our concerts in four different venues over the course of the season: the opening two evenings will take place in Leighton House as usual before we move to Killik & Co.’s unique music room in Mayfair, St George’s Church in Campden Hill and the Austrian Cultural Forum. Please keep an eye on where each concert is taking place and get in touch with us if you have any queries about access.

All our concerts will continue to start at 7.30pm and include interval drinks.

We will also continue to give three young, local musicians “Five Minutes of Fame” slots over the course of the season in association with theWandsworth Young Musician of the Year Competition. Suppor ting young talent is at the forefront of KCMS’s objectives.

Our concerts are brought to you with the kind sponsorship of Killik & Co and Corridy. Their generous support enables KCMS to prosper and to showcase the finest musical talent. Killik & Co offers award-winning advice for your savings, planning and investments and Corridy provides independent property management services in prime locations in London. For further details, see their websites.
