We were very sorry to learn of the death last week of Tim King, a wonderful friend of Rehearsal Orchestra and a Trustee since 2019. We first met Tim when he attended an open rehearsal in London in RO's 60th anniversary year in 2017, at the invitation of mutual friend and violinist Dagmar Turner.
An enthusiast for classical music generally and opera in particular, Tim was a Circuit Judge on the South Eastern Circuit until his retirement in 2012. Tim was a former Chair of The St Leonard’s Society, a charity whose aim was the rehabilitation of offenders, and later the first chair of The Friends of Osborne, an incorporated Charity, dedicated to raising funds for financing restoration projects at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight.
Tim was a warm and good-humoured presence on the Board and we will miss him very much. We offer our condolences to his wife and family.
