Internationally renowned cellist, and now Principal of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Julian Lloyd Webber gave a concert in Hereford in 2005. During the day, the Music Pool hosted a cello masterclass, during which Julian worked with over 20 young musicians, aged from 10 upwards, from near beginners to Grade 8 experts.
On hearing all about our work, Julian was happy to become our Patron and support what we do.
