Steven Isserlis becomes an Honorary Fellow of St Hilda's College
Steven Isserlis's performance at the Jacqueline du Pré Music Building on 1 December 2018 provided the perfect occasion to celebrate his acceptance of an Honorary Fellowship at St Hilda's. Our Principal, Professor Sir Gordon Duff, and Professor Martyn Harry, Fellow and Tutor at St Anne’s College and the John Bennett Lecturer in Music at St Hilda’s, took the opportunity to thank Steven for his many years of artistic support to the College.
Steven has been Patron of the JdP since 1998, and has returned annually to give a recital to a packed auditorium. This year was no different, with Steven and pianist, Alasdair Beatson, performing sonatas by Bach, Beethoven, Fauré and Schumann for a delighted audience and members of the JdP Music Circle.
