On the night, Pete will be supported by a talented RNCM student offering live music rounds. You can sign up now for the chance to enter and win some great prizes, whilst at the same time helping raise money for two great causes!
PWL is thrilled to announce that our very own Pete Waterman is amongst the RNCM’s 2016 list of Honorands!
The Coventry-born entrepreneur, who has sold over 500 million records during his 40 year career, will be awarded Fellowship of the RNCM (FRNCM) alongside alumnus Alasdair Tait, Chief Executive of the Young Classical Artists’ Trust, and award-winning composer Professor Gary Carpenter for services to music.
Professor Linda Merrick, RNCM Principal, said: ‘The RNCM is one of the world’s leading conservatoires, not only for gifted classical musicians, but for talented popular music students too.
‘Every day our students take inspiration from professional tutors, performers and industry experts from all over the world, and it is a pleasure to be able to acknowledge the incredible achievements of Pete Waterman, Alasdair Tait and Gary Carpenter in this way.’
Pete, Alasdair and Gary will be awarded their Fellowships at the College’s Congregation of Awards in December when the RNCM will also present Honorary Membership (HonRNCM) to Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Manchester, Susan Baines, RNCM Vice-Principal (Operations), and Dr Howard Keable, who retires as Secretary of the RNCM Board of Governors later this year.
