The Society’s usual home is the wonderful Leighton House, on Holland Park Road, W14.

(Leighton House is due to re-open on 3rd April 2010.)
The next KCMS concert will take place on 18th February 2010 at St George’s Church on Aubrey Walk, W8. The Navarra String Quartet will perform Joseph Haydn’s Die sieben letzten Worte unseres Erlösers am Kreuze (“The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross”), accompanied by a series of paintings by Jamie Baird, which have been inspired by the piece.
