Andrew Lloyd Webber, the globally-famous composer of some of the world’s best-known and successful musicals including; School Of Rock, Cats, The Phantom Of The Opera, and Evita, will be joining Professor Roger Kirby (RSM President) for an enchanting discussion about his long and extraordinary career, how the theatre has changed, the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, and what he plans to do next.
In 2017 when Sunset Boulevard joined School Of Rock, Cats and The Phantom Of The Opera on Broadway, Andrew became the only person to equal the record set in 1953 by Rodgers and Hammerstein with four Broadway shows running concurrently. Other musicals he has composed include Aspects Of Love, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Starlight Express, Evita and Love Never Dies.
As well as being knighted by Her Majesty the Queen in 1992 for services to the theatre throughout the world and being appointed Honorary Life Peer in 1997, Andrew's awards as a composer and producer include 7 Tonys, 7 Oliviers, 14 Ivor Novellos and an Oscar.
Since 2010, the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation has awarded over £19m to projects that focus on the enhancement of arts education and participation, improving access and increasing diversity across the arts, culture and heritage sector.
