Lady Valerie Solti (1937-2021)

We are deeply saddened to hear of the death of our Honorary Patron Lady Valerie Solti.

Lady Solti was an enthusiastic supporter of Longborough Festival Opera for over a decade. A wonderful and kind-hearted advocate for the charity, she will be sorely missed.

Longborough founders Martin and Lizzie Graham said, "Along with numerous Longborough supporters we spent many happy evenings in 'Georg's bunker.' Her infectious passion for the arts and generosity to artists will be remembered by so many. We will miss her very much."
