This unique opportunity — with an immersion in Handel studies, the chance to meet talented, like-minded individuals, who come to the Royal College from around the world, and an opportunity to sample London’s cultural highlights — has been made possible in part by a very generous gift from the Georgina Joshi Foundation. The Jacobs School of Music is deeply grateful to the Georgina Joshi Foundation for continuing to support meaningful and life-changing opportunities for its students.
A native of Indiana, Georgina Joshi had received her Bachelor of Music from the Royal College of Music, London, where she studied with Eiddwen Harrhy.
