Welcome to the Autumn/Winter issue of Guildhall School News.

A great deal has happened at the School since our last issue. The summer term was packed with events, competitions and prizes: the Gold Medal competitions, the Junior Guildhall Lutine Prize, and the summer musical, Curtains, with its sold- out Gala performance. We have seen changes to senior staff in both Music and Drama and we bid a fond farewell to Sue Thornton, who retires this summer. Meanwhile, contracts have been signed and construction work has begun on the School’s new facilities on the Milton Court site.

In this issue you will also find several personal perspectives on the School, its training and its performances. Two Leadership students discuss some of the opportunities and challenges that have arisen from their course; Kate Royal tells us how valuable her studies at Guildhall were; Mr & Mrs Rebak describe the view from the stalls; and Janet Farmer takes us on tour with 38 students!

The Alumni Pages are full of celebrations – reunions that have happened recently and plans for those to come, and news of alumni successes at work (including Kathleen Ferrier, Tony, Classical Brits and Stage Management Association Awards).

If you have something that you would like us to include in the next issue, Spring/Summer 2011, email your news with an accompanying photograph to by 31 January 2011.

Best wishes, Editorial Group
