She spent the morning talking to staff and students, visiting lessons, and listening to the Junior Conservatoire’s talented young performers.
“The Royal Welsh College occupies a unique place in our higher education sector, being the National Conservatoire of Wales, as well as in Welsh public life,” said Kirsty Williams.
“It is vital that Wales continues to benefit from high quality performing arts courses as these skills are crucial to the success of our creative industries and to our cultural life in general.
I am grateful to Hilary and the team for the invite and for treating me to such a wonderful performance by the Junior Conservatoire which celebrates its 20th year this year. Here’s to many many more.”
