Andrew Lloyd Webber

Andrew Lloyd Webber is a renowned composer known for several classic musicals that have been running on Broadway for more than a decade, including Phantom of the Opera and Cats. Born on March 22, 1948 to composer and organist William Lloyd Webber and violinist Jean Hermione, Webber had music singing through his veins from the day he was born.

He has enjoyed numerous amounts of success over the past few decades and has received several honors for his work including seven Tony awards, three Grammys, seven Oliviers, one Golden Globe and one Oscar. He was also knighted in 1992 and became a life peer of the Queen in 1997, giving him the title “Baron Lloyd Webber”.

Currently, Webber resides at his home in Sydmonton Court, Hampshire, England. He is an avid art collector with a passion for Victorian art and has worked with various charities, most notably his own charity the Andrew Lloyd Webber, Foundation which works to “promote the arts, culture and heritage for the public benefit.” Webber is also an advocate for the breeding program of the increasingly rare Turkish Van, a breed of cat with a love for swimming.
