Here’s one we missed from the New Year’s Honours List.

The banker, Jonathan Moulds, chair of the LSO’s development board and donor of its largest ever gift, has been awarded the CBE.

Aside from his work with the orchestra, Moulds, 47, is a violinist and viola player who lends out some of his prized instruments. One is currently in the hands of Nicola Benedetti.

In his day job, Moulds is European President at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

Well-deserved gong.

    Wish there were more like him!

    Another musician you missed: Alan Fearon MBE – founder member of the (Royal) Northern Sinfonia, founder of its Chorus, its tympanist, and conductor of live scores for great silent movies – dedicated service to music in the North-East of England for over forty years.
