The passing of Peter Cropper PDF Print E-mail

PeterCropperSometimes we are fortunate enough to meet and work with someone who is truly inspirational. One such person was Peter Cropper. We have been shocked and saddened by his untimely and sudden death last week. His dedication to music knew no bounds and music in Sheffield will be diminished by his passing.

Some will remember him as a founder member of the Lindsey Quartet or Music in the Round, others as brilliant, if demanding teacher and mentor. He was a prodigious talent, locally, nationally and internationally in demand, known and respected

We, as the City of Sheffield Youth Orchestra, have much to thank him for as our behind the scenes, hard working Honorary President these past few years. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family, with Nina Martin who taught many of our members, and with Hazel and Martin much loved tutors of the orchestra in whom we have a lasting legacy.

PeterCropperThe CSYO are delighted to welcome Peter Cropper as their new president:

"I am delighted to take on this role. My aim over the next few years will be to make the city aware of the great achievements the CSYO has made. Few people realise that we have one of the most admired youth orchestras in the country. We therefore need to make sure that we can keep the funding necessary to maintain the high standard that we have attained. This is important not only for the development of all the young  musicians taking part but also for the soul of the city."
