Professor Jeffrey Sharkey, principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, said: “This year, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is delighted to be honouring four exceptional artists who not only entertain audiences across the globe but continue to inspire and show real leadership.

"Marin Alsop, Ncuti Gatwa, Sam Heughan and Errollyn Wallen are outstanding ambassadors and role models.

“Graduation is a highlight of the year, and we can’t wait to join our students for what is always a wonderful day of joyful celebration. To be able to come together in person to mark their achievements, after the challenges of the last two years, will have extra significance.

"It is also an opportunity to recognise the groundbreaking artists who use their art, and platforms, as powerful vehicles for change.”
