Sir Malcolm Sargent

The orchestra was founded by Sir Malcolm Sargent in 1922 who was an English conductor, organist and composer widely regarded as Britain's leading conductor of choral work.

He continued to be a conductor with The Leicester Symphony Orchestra until 1939. He later became chief conductor of London's internationally famous summer music festival the Proms in 1948, a career that spanned for 19 years before he died in 1967 from cancer.

Beyond the world of music, a school and a charity were named after him: the Malcolm Sargent Primary School in Stamford and the Malcolm Sargent Cancer Fund for Children, which later merged with the charity CLIC (Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood) in 2005 and became known as CLIC Sargent.
