Royal composer to speak at annual Ladies Lunch

Professor Paul Mealor announced as speaker as tickets go on sale for the University of Aberdeen's annual Ladies Lunch

On Thursday 12th September 2013 the University of Aberdeen's 19th annual Ladies Lunch will be held at The Marcliffe at Pitfodels from 12 noon.

Speaking at the event will be Professor Paul Mealor, a lecturer at the University who was catapulted to international fame in April 2011, when 2.5 billion people - the largest audience in broadcasting history - heard his composition, Ubi caritas, performed by the choirs of Westminster Abbey and Her Majesty’s Chapel Royal at the Royal Wedding ceremony of His Royal Highness Prince William and Catherine Middleton, now TRH The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge.  The piece received excellent reviews from the world’s media and topped the classical singles charts in the USA, UK, Australia, France and New Zealand.

Professor Mealor has written a number of motets, songs, cycles and choral works which have been performed, broadcast and recorded by artists in the USA, the UK and much further afield.  His composition “Wherever You Are”, performed by the UK’s Military Wives Choir was released in December 2011 and entered the UK singles chart at number 1, also claiming the status of the biggest first week sales since 2006.

Guests at the event will enjoy a Bucks Fizz reception followed by a two course lunch, the talk from Professor Mealor and also a special musical performance from students.

All the monies raised from this year's event will be used to support six Chapel Choir choral bursaries in the University of Aberdeen's School of Music.  The successful scholars will each receive £500 to assist with their studies and will be a member of the King's College Chapel choir.

Tickets are now on sale at a cost of £29.50 and can be bought individually or for tables of up to 12.  To buy tickets contact Emma Leiper on +44 (0) 1224 272087 or e-mail e.leiper@abdn.ac.uk.
