Royal Academy of Music Honours

Earlier this month David Butcher (Britten Sinfonia Chief Executive) attended a ceremony at The Royal Academy of Music where he was awarded an 'Honorary Associate of the Royal Academy of Music' (Hon ARAM) by Lord Burns.

The ceremony was a bit of an orchestra gathering as Britten Sinfonia musicians Emma Feilding (oboe) and Rebecca Low (viola) were also there receiving 'Associate of the Royal Academy of Music' (ARAM) honours
