We were delighted to hear that The Governing Body of the Royal Academy of Music
in London has elected conductor Karel Mark Chichon OBE
a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music (FRAM).
Fellowships are awarded to musicians who have distinguished themselves within the profession or who have make a great contribution to the Academy itself. Other Fellows include Sir Henry Wood, Dame Felicity Lott
and Sir Simon Rattle
Speaking to the Gibraltar Chronicle, Karel said
: “to receive news that the Royal Academy of Music … has seen it fit to recognise my career achievements is something that fills me with pride.”
Karel will receive this honour from Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Gloucester on 12 July 2016 in London. Presenter John Suchet – the Academy’s Orator – will read the citation for Karel during the ceremony.
