BEM awarded to Dr Andrew Padmore, Music Adjudicator

We are delighted to share that one of our Music Adjudicators, Dr Andrew Padmore, has been awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM). The award was presented on 30th October 2023 by the Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire. 

Andrew, who is the conductor and artistic director of Yorkshire Philharmonic Choir, received a BEM for his services to music.

A BEM is awarded for a ‘hands-on’ service to the local community, such as a long-term charitable or voluntary activity, or innovative work that has made a significant difference. 

Well done to Andrew on achieving this prestigious and much deserved award.
