RNCM alumnus Trevor Green has been awarded the Order of Australia in The Queen’s Jubilee Birthday Honours for his services to music.
Trevor, who lived in Burnley before settling in Australia, is Chief Executive and Deputy Chairman of Leeds International Piano Competition and studied at the Royal Northern College of Music on a scholarship awarded by Burnley Education Authority.
His citation reads: ‘for his service to arts administration, particularly through the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, to Australia’s symphonic sector, and as a supporter of young artists and composers.’
