On Thursday evening the Royal Northern College of Music put on a London Showcase concert with three of their star students performing Boccherini, Schubert, Ravel and Faure. 

The location was 22 Mansfield Street a charming and interesting location at in Fitzrovia.  The very large apartment is owned by Bob and Elisabeth Boas.  Its substantial rooms are the perfect place to display a very interesting range of modern British artists such as Royal Academicians Ruskin Spear and Ken Howard as well as to provide a comfortable setting for a chamber concert.

Sophie Rosa, violin, and the brother and sister, Mikhail Nemtsov, cello, and Elena Nemtsova, piano, were clearly performers of a high standard and gave great performances. 

Professor Jonty Stockdale Principal gave an informative overview of the College's activities and the inevitable need or funds to sustain the extraordinarily intensive training required to create top flight musicians.

The Company's links with music are, in the main, directed towards the London conservatoires but we are pleased to be linked with the College through the de Turckheim Vocal Scholarships scheme.
