  • 3From the Director

    On behalf of the Council, staff and students of the Royal College of Music, I am delighted to welcome you to the 2013 Graduation Ceremony. For those of you here to receive awards or to support friends or members of your family, I hope that this will be an occasion that you will remember with pleasure and pride.

    I believe that each RCM graduate has a particular responsibility to be an advocate for music. Wherever your career takes you, I want you to be inspired by what you have learned and experienced here. The power of music has long been understood. As Plato recognised more than 2500 years ago: Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul. Music does indeed change the way we see the world and influence how we behave. For musicians, therefore, though the responsibility is great, the possibilities are thrilling, and the rewards infinite.

    Those graduating today join generations of gifted students who have forged their creative careers at the RCM. This list includes some of the most distinguished figures in British music history: Ralph Vaughan Williams, Benjamin Britten, Sir Colin Davis, John Wilson, Sir Thomas Allen, Sarah Connolly, Sir James Galway, Julian Lloyd Webber, Sophie Bevan, Jonathan Lemalu, Elizabeth Watts and Alina Ibragimova.

    Our students are members of the College and this membership does not cease at graduation. Please keep in touch and remember to mention the RCM in your biographies. We will look back with pleasure on the ways in which you have contributed to the life of the College during your student days here: we hope that you will want to do the same.
