Our trainee conductor Will Cole is fast turning out to be a bit of a super star. Opera Lyrica with its five piece string ensemble which Will directed from the harpsichord received very positive reviews on its spring tour. Now Will has been awarded the Lord Mayor’s Composition Prize 2015. Bind, Weave, Spin his piano trio was awarded the prize by a jury including Master of the Queen’s Music Judith Weir, and will be performed at this year’s City of London Festival in June and as part of the City Music Society in October. The prize also includes the status of Yeoman of The Musician’s Company. Fantastic. Well done Will!
