The first rumblings of a merger between the Northern School of Music and the Royal Manchester College of Music here written about in 1956. It took nearly 20 years for it to complete as the RNCM. Due to both schools requesting funding from the local councils, a merger for the financial stability of music education and training was suggested instead. Here begins years and years of negotiations and determination from Ida Carroll (1905-1995, student, secretary and then principal of the Northern School of Music) and co., to make sure that the NSM is not forgotten.

You're welcome, OT. Did you know the school or Ida Carroll? If you have any memories or information about them, I'd love to hear them! Ta, Heather.
