|The current home of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama at the Barbican|
The Guildhall School of Music and Drama is very much a City institution supported directly by the City of London. It is currently located at the other end of London Wall from the Hall in the Barbican. More details are at http://www.gsmd.ac.uk/
It was a most distinguished event with many Fellows of the Guildhall School of Music present. I was particularly delighted to be sitting close by Dame Emma Kirkby. I used to be a volunteer supporting the London Handel Festival at St George's Hanover Square in the mid eighties and can remember Emma giving some memorable performances.

Tom Hoffman,Common Councillor, who is the Chairman of the Board of Governors, was generous in his thanks to the Company and also reflected on the great success of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
