Magdalena Loth-Hill receives Mills Williams Medal
The current Mills Williams Junior Fellow, Magdalena Loth-Hill, was delighted to be presented with the Mills Williams Medal by Chair of Trustees Nigel Woolner on 1 March.
Peter Mills established the Mills Williams Junior Fellowship on the death of his life-long partner, Rod Williams, in 1995, with the aim of supporting music and young musicians. To date, the Mills Williams Foundation has funded 20 Mills Williams Junior Fellows and continues to fund an annual concert at the RCM in memory of Rod Williams. Sadly Peter died in 2006 after a long battle against cancer. Happily, the Mills Williams Foundation lives on with the objective of supporting music and young musicians.
Violinist Magdalena Loth-Hill has studied at the Royal College of Music with Itzhak Rashkovsky, Laura Samuel, Adrian Butterfield and Lucy Russell. At the RCM, she has been soloist in Bach’s E major concerto and Brandenburg no 4, and won the Century Fund Prize with her string quartet, the Consone Quartet.
Magdalena stars alongside Laure Chan in a performance of Bach's Concerto for 2 Violins in D minor at the RCM on Thursday 3 March.
