In recognition of the valued support of donors to King's College London, the Principal, Professor Rick Trainor, hosted the Principal's Concert and reception in mid-March this year.

Guests were welcomed to the event by the Principal, Dean, and KCLSU President, Mr Sebastian Debrouwere, who delivered a heart-felt speech on behalf of the student body thanking alumni and friends of the College for their support.

The Principal’s Concert was directed by the College Organist, David Trendell, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Music. The Choir of King’s College London performed an exclusive programme that included Messe de Requiem by Alfred Desenclos (1912-1971) for our guests. The Choir is one of the leading university choirs in England and consists of 25 choral scholars and two organ scholars. Throughout the past year, the Choir has performed both in the UK and abroad at a number of prestigious venues.

Several members of the Choir are scholarship recipients and they joined the reception afterwards to speak with guests about the positive impact such gifts have on the lives of staff and students at King’s College London. The Choir were also joined at the reception by a selection of student societies, who have received support from alumni and friends of the College who wanted to personally update our supporters on the work of their respective society.

Earlier in the day, the Principal hosted the College’s first ever ‘Thank You’ event for alumni and friends who have chosen to leave a gift in their will. During the Afternoon Tea, guests heard about some of the College’s historical legacy gifts dating back to the late 19th century and from a student recipient of a PhD scholarship established from an alumna’s legacy gift. Do have a look at the photos from the Afternoon Tea and please email legacy-info@kcl.ac.uk, or call 020 7848 4700, if you would like any further information about leaving a gift in your will.
