Angela Kay announced as the recipient of Making Music’s Lady Hilary Groves Prize 2015.
Awarded to one individual each year, the Lady Hilary Groves Award is presented to a member nominated by their group for their outstanding contribution to music in the community.
Peter Lawson, Chair of Making Music, says:
Angela Kay has an extraordinary musical talent, and over many years she has channelled this into a wide range of music making in and around Nottingham. Perhaps her most notable achievement is the creation of ‘Music for Everyone’, an impressive and wide ranging adult and youth programme sponsored by Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham. Without her drive and enthusiasm, musical life throughout this part of the East Midlands would be much the poorer. She is a worthy winner of the Lady Hilary Groves Prize this year.
Angela will be presented with the award at our Christmas is Coming concert at the Albert Hall, Nottingham, on Sunday 13 December.
