Library and Information Services, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

Thursday, 24 November 2011


Heather Nicoll and Bryan Allen
Trumpeter and conductor Bryan Allen, former Head of Brass and Instrumental Performance, is to receive a Fellowship from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland today.  'Whittaker' deplores media intrusion, but felt it was not inappropriate to share with you some of the highlights of Bryan's career.

Here's his own post at the Old Loughburians' Association - Loughburgh Grammar School's alumni website.

You can find works conducted by Bryan on the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's Whittaker Library Catalogue - here.  (The Buxton Orr CD - made when we were the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, RSAMD, is available on Amazon.)
  • Searching our catalogue under Fine Arts Brass - in which Bryan played for many years - yields lots more hits!
  • Staff and students here can listen to Bryan's trumpet playing streamed on Naxos - visit our electronic resources website and pick internal or external access depending where you are.
Today's combined Graduation Ceremony and Conferment of Fellowships will also see Fellowships awarded to Vicky Featherstone of National Theatre Scotland and Alex Reedijk, of Scottish Opera.

Vicky Featherstone and Maggie Kinloch
Degrees will be conferred for the MA in Classical and Contemporary Text (Acting and Directing), MA Musical Theatre (Performance and Musical Directing), Master of Music (all specialisms), and Master of Opera.  A few postgraduate diplomas and undergraduate degrees will also be conferred.

NB As promised - more scenes from behind the scenes ...
