Ex-London orchestra cellist is jailed for child abuse

Roger Lunn, described by the BBC as a former member of the London Symphony Orchestra during a previous trial, has been jailed for four years in Mid Sussex for offences against two boys in the 1980s, while working as a teacher.

Lunn, who is 76, pleaded guilty to ten counts of indecent assault and was put on the sex offenders’ register for life.

UPDATE: Subsequent research indicates that he was a member of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, not the LSO.

  • Sentenced on 2nd December 2015 at Kingston Crown Court to 2 years 6 months (to run concurrently) for each of 5 counts of indecent assault for offences committed between 1970 and 1976, to run consecutively with the sentence already being served.

  • I am so delighted that Roger Lunn is behind bars. It was very distressing to see him skipping out of court with his rucksack on his back and a big grin on his face (in front of some of his victims) at Cambridge Crown Court.

  • I was at school with Roger from ’52 to ’56. At that time he was the lead cellist for the National Youth Orchestra and quite a brilliant player. We shared a study for some years and there was nothing on anyone’s radar as to his unfortunate leanings. I guess music teachers lead a pretty lonely life.
