We are saddened to learn of the passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II
9 Sep 2022
All of us at Music in the Round are saddened to learn of the passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II, who was such a supporter of music and musicians in this country. Our thoughts and condolences are with the Royal Family at this time.
She showed support for music makers in many ways, from appointing the first female Master of Queen’s Music, inaugurating The Queen’s Medal for Music and recognising creators in the Honours.
We are now in a period of national mourning. Advice from the palace is that official and routine business should continue, which feels a fitting tribute in some ways to a monarch who kept going through the best and worst of times.
