-Posted on 15.05.2020

The Academy-wide #RAMplaysON campaign continues while the buildings are closed. We have included some of our favourite performances from the past week at the bottom of this news story. You can continue to submit your music-making by posting to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #RAMplaysON.

Imelda Staunton gave a Zoom masterclass to our Musical Theatre students this week. The BAFTA award-winning actress was made an Honorary Member of the Academy in July 2018.

Our Artist Development team spoke to Academy alumnus Clifton Harrison, a violist and researcher who performs with the acclaimed Kreutzer Quartet alongside solo and orchestral work. They discussed his new 'One Camera, One Take' project and spoke about what the current situation means for him as a musician. You can read the full interview on our website and catch up with Clifton’s 'One Camera, One Take' series on his YouTube channel.

It has been Museum Week on social media, and we have been posting highlights from our exhibitions, collections and events. The Academy Museum, which opened in 2001, displays and loans instruments of historic importance, as well as hosting temporary exhibitions. We hope to be able to welcome you back to the Museum soon, in the meantime you can browse our collections online.
