Plus personal donations from individuals, “in memoriam” donations and legacies all of which are hugely valued and appreciated

Both the CYM and the LSSO are grateful to the late John Skinner for his generous bequest. Until his premature death in 2014, John served the CYM organisation with great distinction, both as a teacher and pastoral leader. John’s generosity will ensure his legacy lives on for many years.

Both organisations are also enormously grateful to the late Peter Croser. Peter Croser worked as a piano teacher and then accompanist at CYM from the early 70s until his retirement in 2013. Born in London, Peter studied at the Royal Academy of Music from the age of 16 and enjoyed a distinguished career as a soloist and accompanist, regularly performing on radio and TV as well as in the concert hall. He was also an examiner for ABRSM and taught at the University of Surrey.

Peter was an inspiration to countless CYM students and is also remembered as the hugely informative host of the weekly lunchtime concerts.
