His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales Unveils New Royal College of Music Campus

By Francisco Salazar

On Dec. 2, 2021, the Royal College of Music welcomed His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales as he officially opened the new facilities created by the More Music: Reimagining the Royal College of Music development.

His Royal Highness, who is also the President of the Royal College of Music, visited some of the new facilities for the very first time and cut a ceremonial ribbon in front of a specially invited audience. The RCM’s More Music development was funded by a £40 million philanthropic campaign, of which HRH The Prince of Wales was Patron.

During his visit, His Royal Highness was given a tour of some of the new spaces designed by architect John Simpson and met some of the key personnel who delivered this momentous project. He also toured the new Royal College of Music Museum designed by ZMMA and listened to performances by some of the RCM’s current students.

The More Music development has touched all aspects of the RCM and has also provided for an expanded scholarship program to support the most talented students, regardless of means.
