Internationally acclaimed Harriet Mackenzie performs a one off concert as a fundraiser for World Heart Beat. Proceeds from the concert will fund our bursaries. World Heart Beat's academy gives children and young people, many of whom live in challenging circumstances, the opportunity to learn music. We open our doors to any child wanting to learn music and provide free instruments and tuition to anyone who needs them. With the cost of living crisis, families face significant financial challenges, and our bursaries are more vital than ever.

Harriet Mackenzie is a renowned concerto soloist who has performed across five continents. Her recordings include concertos with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra Nova and the English Symphony Orchestra and these have received international acclaim, including Five Stars in The Times (Richard Morrison) and have also frequently appeared in the ‘Top Recordings of The Year’ lists.

These include a nomination for ‘Recording of The Year’ in Music Web International: “There is a completeness, a confidence, an honesty and a consistent lyrical beauty that has moved me again and again. These qualities all emerge in Harriet Mackenzie’s utterly magisterial performance. Performances and recording are first-class throughout. Harriet Mackenzie’s commitment to these composers and these works is obvious, her performances are riveting.” (Richard Hanlon)

"Searing intensity; a performance full of panache. Captivating.” (The Strad)
"Harriet Mackenzie plays with a burning commitment and intensity that composers usually dream of; this is a wonderful performance" (Gramophone)

Celoniatus Ensemble

Named after her 1730 Italian violin, Harriet Mackenzie founded the Celoniatus Ensemble in 2016. She hand-plucked international prizewinners and young, established professionals to perform alongside her in an innovative chamber orchestra. The group's sold-out debut performance of Piazzolla/Desyanikov's Four Seasons of Buenos Aires at Trinity Laban London was highly acclaimed and has lead to exciting invitations at international festivals around the UK and Europe including performances at Salisbury Cathedral, Chichester Cathedral, the acclaimed 'TunedIn' Series in London and they have live broadcasts on BBC Radio 3's In Tune programme. The group has a wide ranging repertoire from innovative contemporary works that have been written for them to gems of the Baroque repertoire.

"A freshness and dynamicism rarely experience. The whole programme was delightful, brilliantly played with passion, breath-taking virtuosity, imagination and intelligence" (Amanda Cook, Amici Concert Series, Chichester Cathedral.)
