Carolyn Sampson and Laurence Cummings have both been awarded an OBE in the King's New Year Honours 2024 for services to music.

Laurence Cummings is a leading figure in historical performance both as a conductor and a harpsichord player. He is currently Music Director of the Academy of Ancient Music, Musical Director of the London Handel Festival and Music Director of Orquestra Barroca Casa da Música in Porto. A noted authority on Handel, the Guardian has written of him “he now ranks as one of the composer’s best advocates in the world.”

Carolyn Sampson has enjoyed notable successes as a soprano worldwide in repertoire ranging from early baroque to the present day. Carolyn released her 100th album as a featured solo artist in November 2023 which has received high acclaim from critics "Carolyn Sampson has shifted from an early music specialist to one of Britain’s finest recital singers. This latest album showcases her radiant soprano in classic German lieder, recherché French chansons and 20th-century Americana." BBC Music Magazine.
