ISM Announces Professor Barry Ife As New President

Bookmark and Share

Professor Barry Ife CBE FKC HonFRAM FRCM, Principal of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, is announced as the Incorporated Society of Musicians' President.

The ISM, the UK's professional body for musicians, recently achieved record recruitment for the six months between September 2013 and February 2014 and Professor Ife will lead the organisation at the largest it has ever been.

Professor Ife became Principal of the Guildhall School in September 2004 and over the last decade he has repositioned the School within the higher education sector, strengthened strategic partnerships with a range of performing arts organisations such as the Barbican Centre, London Symphony Orchestra and Royal Opera House and achieved recognition for Guildhall's music outreach and opera programmes through two Queen's Anniversary Prizes (2005 and 2007). In addition to training 900 students at higher education level, the Guildhall School is now the UK's single largest provider of music education to under 18s and Ife's long-held ambition to build additional facilities at Milton Court has become a reality. The new building, which opened in September 2013, houses state-of-the-art performance venues, rehearsal and teaching spaces and is one of many highlights in his career to date.

Professor Barry Ife comments 'I am looking forward to working with the members and officers of the ISM to promote the importance of music in society, the interests of musicians and the importance of music education in the UK.'

Deborah Annetts, Chief Executive of the ISM, comments 'I am absolutely delighted that Barry will be our new president from April 2014. I have no doubt that he will be an inspirational and dedicated President, further enhancing the reputation of the ISM. Having been at the helm of one of the most prestigious music schools for a decade, Barry's deep insight into the challenges facing professional musicians today is second to none. His dedication to nurturing talent, his strategic vision and record of getting things done make him a perfect fit with the ISM.'
