Sir Malcolm Sargent Trust
Since Malcolm Sargent’s death in 1967, the Society has sought to celebrate his contribution to music with the ‘Malcolm Sargent Concert’, a concert given in conjunction with the Stamford Endowed Schools Choral Society. This takes place every three years, and the next one will be performed in 2016.
