It is with great sadness that we report the death of our dear friend and supporter Christine Collins.
Throughout her life, Christine has been a champion and major benefactor of the arts. At Glyndebourne she was committed to supporting young people and their artistic journey. Christine supported the chorus scheme, as well as the successful pilot of the Glyndebourne Academy which assists young people who have barriers to receiving musical training. In 2014 she had given her support to the Understudies for La Finta Giardiniera.
Christine wanted to give young people a chance to succeed in the Arts – her support of young singers at Glyndebourne is a wonderful legacy for the future of opera. She will be greatly missed.
