TWO new appointments have been made to the organisations that run and support the Three Choirs Festival, which rotates between Gloucester, Hereford, and Worcester. The Three Choirs Festival Association, which organises the festival, has appointed David Whelton, former managing director of the Philharmonia Orchestra, to its board.

The Three Choirs Festival Society, members of which support the festival financially and socially, has appointed the baritone Roderick Williams as its new president. Mr Williams succeeds Dame Felicity Lott, with immediate effect.

Responding to the invitation, Mr Williams said: “It is a huge honour to be invited to follow in such wonderful and august footsteps as those of Dame Felicity and her predecessor, Dame Janet Baker. It gives me quite a frisson even to be considered in the same breath. That will be quite something to live up to. I am honoured and flattered to have been considered and it would give me great pleasure to assume the role.”
