The Kell Wind Trio has gained a reputation for giving lively and informative concerts which include music of many different styles and genres – from music of the Baroque to accessible music from the 20th and 21st centuries.
The Kell Wind Trio is named after the pioneering English instrumentalist Reginald Kell, who was the first clarinettist to use vibrato in orchestral concerts.
Alastair Roberts plays principal flute with a number of orchestras in the Manchester area including the Wilmslow Symphony Orchestra and the Cheshire Sinfonia. He is a member of several chamber groups that perform regularly throughout the North West of England including the Telemann Baroque Ensemble.
Geoffrey Smith plays regularly as principal clarinet with both Wilmslow Symphony Orchestra and Cheshire Sinfonia. He has also played as principal clarinet until recently with Stockport Orchestra since its inception in 1975. He has appeared many times as soloist with these and other orchestras.
Ian Harvey was a Junior Exhibitioner at London’s Royal Academy of Music. His musical commitments include the position of principal bassoon with the Stockport Symphony Orchestra. He runs his own business repairing woodwind instruments
