PSO Conductor & Musical Director Anne Kimber awarded Honorary Degree by Plymouth Marjon University

Professor Rob Warner was delighted to award Plymouth Symphony Orchestra’s Conductor, Anne Kimber, with the degree of Master of Arts Honoris Causa on Sunday 26 June 2022 at the University’s first ‘Prom on the Quad’ event.

The University is empowered to confer honorary degrees upon persons who have achieved great distinction in their professional and personal lives and made outstanding contributions to the fabric of our society.

A number of nominations were considered for this year’s honorary degrees and we were unanimous in wishing to recognise Anne’s significant achievements by awarding the Degree of Master of Arts Honoris Causa, the highest level of award the University is authorised to bestow.

Professor Warner said ‘The University wishes to recognise Anne’s dedication to both the Plymouth Symphony Orchestra, and the Dartington Festival Orchestra, but equally her overall contribution to the field of classical music within the region. We believe she offers an excellent role model for our students and would be an admirable ambassador for the University’.

The institution celebrates a string of recent good news, being named the top university in England for Teaching Quality, and in the Top 10 for Student Experience, by the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022; achieving 3rd in England to response to the pandemic; and latest governmental data (Longitudinal Education Outcomes) showing that teachers who train at Plymouth Marjon become the top earners in the Southwest and Wales.

The Prom on the Quad event was such a success that the University hopes to hold it again in the summer of 2023.
