Guildhall Supporters Evening
Wednesday 23rd November 2016
As a Livery we support three students at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and this evening is set up for us to meet them. Taking place in the superb Milton Court buildings - buildings that will provide a lasting testament to out-going Principal Prof. Barry Iffe - there was a large throng gathered on the first floor reception area. Although I was armed with names and disciplines, I had no idea how to find our students.. luckily that had been anticipated and sort of match-making desk had been set up to put students with sponsors. Thus, the Mistress and self were delighted to meet Ben Smith (paino) and Michael Vickers (bass baritone); sadly Diana Sheach (French horn) was unable to attend, but I am hopeful we'll see her, and the gents, in action soon. Interestingly as there are 900 students here, it's little surprise that none of our scholars had met each other either so it was a useful event to host for all concerned.
