Ronald Corp, the composer, conductor, Anglican priest and educator extraordinaire, has been awarded an honorary degree by Anglia Ruskin University (full citation on their website). He founded the New London Orchestra in 1989 to promote 19th and 20th century music. With them he has recorded an influential series of CD's of British light music; his most recent concert with the orchestra was a concert performance of Delius's A Village Romeo and Juliet to celebrate the composer's 150th anniversary.

He also founded the New London Childrens Choir with the aim of introducing young people to both the challenges and the fun of singing and performing. A widely performed composer (see his website for more details) he was awarded the OBE for services to music in 2012.
