I was greatly honoured recently to be elected a Fellow of the College of Violinists “for services to the International Private Education Sector”. The College of Violinists was founded in 1890 and has been administered by the Victoria College of Music since 1962. I was elected a Fellow honoris causa of the Victoria College of Music for services to the Performing Arts in 2010.
Today, the Fellowship of the College of Violinists is the highest honorary award of the Victoria College of Music, and is awarded to both violinists and non-violinists for services to the arts. It is awarded rarely and requires the unanimous agreement of Executive Council.
