Grenville Hancox MBE
Grenville Hancox MBE is well known as a teacher, performer and conductor initiating and researching music and health activities throughout his career. He is artistic director of Canterbury Cantata Trust a charity he founded in 2012 developing a collection of singing groups including STBP all demonstrating the principle of caring through singing. He is both Emeritus Professor of Canterbury Christ Church University and Honorary Professor at Kent University, and was awarded the MBE for services to Music in 2005 and a Civic Award by Canterbury City Council for services to the community through music in 2006.
My career in music education was primed by a concert tour by the Staffordshire Youth Orchestra (1968) to East Berlin when world politics prevented dialogue between communities and nations. The performance of music, the sharing of ideas in sound remains the way to change the world. Kent and Medway Young Musicians are catalysts for change, the means to create a better world. Please support them!
