New FCM President announced for 2016
Our President, Dr Christopher Robinson CBE, will ‘retire’ at the time of our Diamond Jubilee National Gathering in London in June 2016. He will be succeeded by Dr Stephen Cleobury CBE, the internationally respected Director of Music of the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge.
On becoming our President-elect, he said, “I am honoured to have been asked to be President of the FCM, an organisation which does so much wonderful work to support music in our cathedrals, churches and colleges at a time when there are increasing financial pressures on choral foundations. Not the least of my pleasure in accepting this position is to be the successor to Christopher Robinson, an outstanding musician who has done so much for the cause of cathedral music, and to whom I, personally, owe so much.”
