Trinity Laban string alumni performed at a citizenship ceremony at the Old Royal Naval College on Tuesday 16 December, where 20 people were officially welcomed as British citizens.
The Camilli String Quartet, which features alumni Nandita Bhatia, Erin Smith, Elin Parry and Olivia Clayton, performed as part of the ceremony at the Painted Hall to help welcome the new citizens to the local community.
The Painted Hall was built for public rather than private purposes, and its elegant architecture and breathtaking murals are a perfect setting for such a symbolic and joyous occasion.
Trinity Laban regularly engages with the community via music and dance performances across Greenwich and neighbouring boroughs, including regular lunchtime concerts at St Alfege Church and the Old Royal Naval College and evening concerts at Blackheath Halls and the National Maritime Museum. Students and staff also regularly engage in workshops – from children in local schools to adult dance classes in Deptford, and Trinity Laban is partners with Greenwich Dance, making South East London a major dance hub.
