HRH The Prince of Wales Becomes Patron of the Menuhin Competition London 2016
We are delighted to announce that HRH The Prince Of Wales has agreed to be the Patron of the centenary edition of the Menuhin Competition, returning to London from 7 to 17 April.
His Royal Highness said: “As a friend and admirer of Lord Menuhin, I wanted to send my warmest good wishes to all the gifted young competitors taking part in the Menuhin Competition London 2016 and hope that lifelong friendships will be forged with fellow musicians from around the world. The Menuhin Competition provides tremendous opportunities for the competitors to perform, to learn from one another, to receive the guidance of the jury and to give masterclasses in schools and the community through the outreach programme. This combination is what makes the event so very special”.
We are delighted to have His Royal Highness’ support, and we could not be more excited for the start of the Competition on 7 April. The programme includes: world premieres, internationally renowned soloists, many of whom are Competition jury members, performing major concerts with some of London’s finest orchestras, exhibitions, family concerts, masterclasses and outreach programmes – with the Competition at its heart.
