Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla has received an honorary degree from the University of Birmingham.

Mirga joined six other honorary graduates and more than 5,000 students collecting their degrees this month in the University’s iconic Great Hall.

After receiving her Doctor of Music award from University of Birmingham Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir David Eastwood, she said: “Since I joined the CBSO I have hoped to meet the professors and team at the University of Birmingham, so it’s a dream come true to be given this honour today. I’m delighted that I will be Dr Gražinytė-Tyla!”
