Music Director and Organist Recognised

University College Isle of Man’s (UCM) Higher Education ceremony was held recently at the Villa Marina, Douglas to recognise the academic achievements of UCM and UK graduates.

Each year, UCM select an individual to be awarded the title of Honorary Fellow, an accolade which recognises those who commit time and effort in supporting the vision of UCM and those who have achieved outstanding work within their own field or the community.

With over 25 years of experience in the field of music, Dr Peter Litman, Director of Music and Organist at St Germans Cathedral, Peel, was selected this year.

Dr Litman said, “I feel immensely proud to receive this year’s Honorary Fellowship from UCM. Music is so strong and important to our Island community, and I believe that universities are the most important institutions in our society. They are the one place where art and truth have freedom, uninfluenced by the commercial and political world. To receive an honour from such a place should be treasured”.
