Another doctorate for Rahman

IndiaGlitz [Wednesday, April 01, 2009]
Awards and appreciation are just keeping on pouring in for the most talented music maker of India-A.R.Rahman.
After the decision of Anna University in Tamilnadu to confer a doctorate in Media Sciences to the composer, it is the turn of a foreign university to do the same.
The syndicate of Middlesex University in London has now announced an honorary doctorate for A.R.R.
Rahman will be presented with this prestigious honour at the Middlesex University’s annual graduation ceremony to be held in July.
The decision of the syndicate was conveyed to the music maestro by Joe Victor who is the regional director of the Middlesex University.
This doctorate gives way to the association of Rahman with the university getting stronger.
For sometime now Rahman’s KM Music Conservatory situated in Chennai was holding discussions with the officials of the Middlesex University for a joint music degree course.
The efforts of the Conservatory have paid off as the proposed course will start next year.
Now the interested students can do the first two years of the Middlesex University’s Bachelor Of Arts honours programe for Music Composition and Music Performance in Chennai and the final year at London.
