Honour for ‘inspirational’ Terfel
The Queen presents the medal to Bryn Terfel
It is only the second time the Queen’s medal has been awarded
Welsh opera star Bryn Terfel has become the second holder of the Queen’s Medal for Music in a ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
Terfel was presented with the medal by the Queen on stage at a special BBC Prom marking her 80th birthday.
Conductor Sir Charles Mackerras was the first recipient of the medal given to individuals or groups that have a major influence on the nation’s musical life.
Terfel said it was an “honour and a privilege” to be recognised.
Music, singing and performing is such a joy – every day I feel blessed to be able to do what I love – Bryn Terfel
