Exclusive: Royal Academy of Music suspends head of operamain
A message went out a few minutes ago from the principal of the Royal Academy of Music, Jonathan Freeman-Attwood, announcing the immediate suspension of Gareth Hancock.
Sources tell us he had been on a warning over similar conduct in the past year.
Nobody at the RAM was available for comment, but we’ve received several leaks of the principal’s email.
Dear Staff and Students
As of this morning, Gareth Hancock is suspended from the Royal Academy of Music.
We asked the RAM to clarify. The reply? ‘The Academy has no further comment at this time.’
