The esteemed Director of Music at London’s Southbank Centre, Gillian Moore MBE, received an Honorary Doctorate from the Department of Music at City’s latest graduation ceremony.

At Southbank, she has worked to change the landscape for music, find new audiences, improve diversity and support new music. Gillian has worked to bring music and the arts to the widest possible community for over 35 years.
In 1983, she became the first Education Officer at a UK orchestra, taking the London Sinfonietta into schools and prisons before becoming Head of Education at Southbank.
Returning to the Sinfonietta as Artistic Director between 1998 and 2006, Gillian commissioned new works and her innovative approach helped connect new music to wider culture, including visual art, dance and electronica.
Gillian was awarded an MBE for services to British music in 1994. She also writes and broadcasts regularly about music, mainly on BBC Radio 3.
