Tylers and Bricklayers 600th Anniversary Concert

Monday 18th April 2016

A very special event was hosted by the Tylers and Bricklayers on Monday 18th April. This is the year of their 600th anniversary and they held a concert at Milton Court, home of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. The GSMD is well known to us. Each year we support scholars in their studies and we frequently invite them to perform at our dinners. The Tylers and Bricklayers also support the school and a concert featuring several students was organised for this anniversary celebration. As usual the students performed brilliantly and we sat in awe enjoying a programme which included a brass quintet. solo piano, violin and opera. The concert ended with some Cole Porter classics which most of the audience were humming as we joined the reception afterwards. It was a very happy evening and the sheriffs, Dr Christine Rigden and Charles Bowman called in at the beginning of the evening to wish the Company well and to congratulate them on their 600th.
