LYC would like to offer congratulations to Leslie East, one of our trustees, who has been awarded an OBE in the New Year’s Honours 2016 for services to musicians and music education. Formerly the chief executive of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM), Leslie’s support and guidance as a trustee is invaluable to the running of LYC and we are thrilled that his outstanding contribution to music has been suitably recognised. Congratulations, Leslie!
