Andrew Ward appointed new Chair of NMC
6 August 2014

Andrew Ward said: “I feel extremely privileged to be invited to join the committed trustees and very talented staff at NMC. I know that I speak for everyone involved with the charity when I record my grateful thanks for all that Richard Shoylekov – the previous Chair – achieved during his three years at the helm. We are clearly at a very interesting point in NMC's history. We are celebrating our 25th Anniversary which itself is a remarkable achievement, but we are looking forward to a future that bristles with challenges and constraints. And yet it is also the case that there never has been a time when what NMC does has been more important. I have always been clear that NMC is a national asset which it is imperative to promote and preserve. I am determined that with the support of our brilliant partners, including this major new funding from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and others, we will successfully develop our activities, to meet the challenges of the future and to continue to be the UK's leading voice for new music.”
