THE PARK LANE GROUP MUSIC TRUST
We are sad to announce the death, at the age of 91, after a short illness, of John Woolf, Director of The Park Lane Group.
He founded it in 1956, when a member of the First Violins at the Royal Opera House, and his dedication, enthusiasm and
relentless hard work over more than 65 years helped launch the careers of many PLG alumni who are, today, known nationally
and indeed internationally. He was focused on his work with PLG right up until the end, and rejoiced that the easing of
Covid restrictions had enabled public concerts to re-start. Although he is irreplaceable, we hope to continue to further
his goals of providing highly talented young musicians with a prominent platform to launch their careers, and a
resolute focus on new and commissioned compositions.
John's memorial service was held on Friday 18th March, 3pm at Holy Sepulchre London, the National Musicians' Church,
Holborn Viaduct, London EC1A 2DQ.
