Royal College of MusicThe Royal College of Music is the school where Gustav Hoilst, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Benjamin Britten, James Galway, Joan Sutherland and Ralph Vaughan Williams learnt their trades also hosts a regular program of concerts in its 19th-century hall. The student orchestras and ensembles are of very near porofessional standard, top intern ational musicians cmoe in for performances and masterclasses, and there is, of course, a chance to spot the next big classical stars. With a little bit of politeness, you can also often sneak into interesting lectures.
