Welcome to the Online Global Network
Welcome to the Online Global Network of the Royal Academy of Music. Whether you graduated this year or fifty years ago, whether you want professional advice, to find out about Alumni Network events, or track down and meet up with other alumni, the Academy’s Online Global Network is a living, breathing, and ever-expanding ‘hub’ for you.
Your loyalty is precious to us and our ambition is to keep the Academy relevant to you throughout your life.
Last term, we welcomed our first President of Alumni, alumnus and conductor Edward Gardner (class of 2000). We are also focussing on the launch of our highly anticipated Alumni Mentoring Scheme, and beginning to establish our International Operation. It’s early days and there is much work ahead if we are to create the regional centres, volunteer programmes, professional development opportunities and maintain the events calendar that we promised at the start.
Our 2013 social events calendar includes the ever-popular opera dress exclusives, family workshops and candlelit Christmas celebration, as well as some new-look events to watch out for in spring and summer 2013. A major event for spring 2013 will be the 1970s Reunion planned for Sunday 24 February. If you were a student here in any part of the 1970s, then this event is for you. Please come and meet all those long-lost friends, colleagues and people you never knew then but now have a second chance! If you can’t come, please furnish us with any Academy alums whose details we may not have on our database.
The Academy has prioritised an Alumni Network in its budget at a time when such important ancillary services are seriously threatened by Higher Education funding cuts. We are here to stay but for the Alumni Network to grow and flourish over time as we would wish, we need to attract as much financial support as possible. If you feel able to make any contribution to the work of the Alumni Network or to the Alumni Scholarship Fund, we would be enormously grateful to hear from you.
The Alumni Network: keeping the Academy
present in the minds and lives of its alumni.
