Sir Charles Mackerras plaque unveiled
On Tuesday 14th May at Hamilton Terrace NW8 a commemorative plaque was unveiled for the late Sir Charles Mackerras (1925-2010), the family home for over forty years. Amongst the many guests were Lady Mackerras, daughter Catherine and granddaughter Chloe. Three wonderful young musicians from the Royal Academy of Music (members of the Notus Winds Quintet) played to open and close the event: a delightful symmetry to have a young lady on the oboe and young man on the clarinet. Our very own Joint Chief Executive, Mr. Robert Rattray, paid a short tribute to Sir Charles which you can read here.
A very fitting tribute to mark a long and hugely successful career.
