Koerner Hall Concert to Pay Tribute to Sir Neville Marriner
The Royal Conservatory mourns Sir Neville Marriner, one of the 20th century's foremost musicians. The influential conductor, who led orchestras and operas the world over, was perhaps best known as the Founder and Life President of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, and for his countless and universally admired recordings with the ensemble. “Marriner stood as an inspiration to all musicians for his magisterial contribution to our field,” said Dr. Peter Simon, Michael and Sonja Koerner President & CEO of The Royal Conservatory.
Executive Director of Performing Arts Mervon Mehta reminisced: “I ran into Sir Neville in Vienna just a few months ago and was so glad to see him as vibrant and healthy as he had been at our first meeting. I am so grateful that his recordings will live on as a tribute to his musicianship.”
On October 21, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble will appear in Koerner Hall for the first time in an already sold out performance, and The Royal Conservatory is dedicating the concert to the memory of Sir Neville Marriner.
