John McLeod CBE in conversation with David Lyle: Music and Life

To mark a very special year for award-winning composer
and Club Member John McLeod – all the way from being presented with the CBE for services to music right through to his recent new recording with the RSNO and Dame Evelyn Glennie – John has been asked to present three special events at the Club which we’re sure will be fascinating as well as illuminating.
 
 Music & Life / Saturday 25th November / 11.30am
John McLeod in conversation with David Lyle
followed by Club lunch
 
Reminiscences of life in war-time Aberdeen – a job in Aberdeen’s City Police Force and a journey which saw his entry to the Royal Academy of Music and his future as a composer, conductor and teacher. Meetings with Sir Adrian Boult, Lutoslawski, Guilini and Bernstein, all accompanied by his specially chosen music, should make a fascinating morning!
