RNCM postgraduate conductor Daniel Parkinson and students from the School of Strings have teamed up with British pianist and Junior RNCM alumnus David Schofield to release a charity single in aid of our Concert Hall transformation.

A new version of the famous Londonderry Air, or Danny Boy as it’s more commonly known, will be released through all major online stores on Monday 19 May with proceeds going towards Your RNCM, the £3 million campaign to redevelop our 40-year-old Concert Hall into a state-of-the-art venue.

Recorded in the Carole Nash Recital Room in April, the single was arranged for piano and strings by popular RNCM alumnus and world-famous pianist Stephen Hough with original orchestration by Ross Clarke.

This release is kindly supported by Styles & Wood Group who are carrying out the refurbishment of the RNCM Concert Hall.
