RNCM Visits SJR Music Department
The Cardinal in college
Nina Valvi with the students and RNCM performers

Our Music Department were delighted to welcome representatives from the Royal Northern College of Music, an institution which many of our musicians aspire to attend.

Nina Valvi, a former RNCM student who now works within the College’s marketing department, led a workshop in which students were asked to write down their future ‘dream’ careers. She said “It’s lovely to see such a diverse set of musical aspirations, from performance to sound engineering and even copyright law. We encourage young musicians to pursue their dreams and with RNCM this is made all the more possible.”

The group were then treated to a performance from Melia Duo, a unique saxophone and percussion duo made up of Hannah Fry and Alex Smith, current students of the RNCM. They went on to deliver a Q&A session to give our students an idea of what life at the College would be like, particularly the fact that being an RNCM student is a full time job!

We would once again like to thank the RNCM for an inspirational afternoon and for giving our students a better understanding of the reality of study with a conservatoire. We look forward to seeing the dream careers mentioned on the day becoming a reality!
