The Queen’s Birthday Honours
Our warmest congratulations go out several individuals associated with the RCM whose achievements were recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
The RCM’s Deputy Chairman Jane Barker was awarded a CBE for services to the Financial and Insurance Services Industries and voluntary service. Fellow RCM Council member Victoria Sharp – founder and Chief Executive of London Music Masters and Chairman of the London Philharmonic Orchestra – was awarded an OBE for service to Music; so too was Janis Susskind, Managing Director of Boosey and Hawkes, who also served on the RCM Council.
Honours were also given to two outstanding musicians who gave memorable recent masterclasses at the RCM: soprano Susan Bullock, who was made an CBE, and pianist András Schiff, who received a knighthood. You can watch András Schiff’s masterclass on the RCM YouTube Channel.
Our congratulations to them, and to all of those honoured.
