Ageless Heroes Plaque

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona and The Arizona Republic salute the Ageless Heroes for whom retirement is more about seizing the day than sitting back. The Ageless Heroes Program was created to recognize that being a senior is as triumphant as any time to be alive. In 2008 Lindsay was awarded this honor in the Creative Expressions category.

Lindsay Lafford, Lord of Ridley, is the embodiment of what an active mind and positive outlook can do to prolong health and happiness. Lindsay has been involved in music since he was a child growing up in England, active as a chorister and organist. His musical career has afforded him opportunities to be organist, composer, conductor and professor in cathedrals, colleges and universities from England to Hong Kong and across the United States.

He is prolific composer with more than 300 works. In his latest musical adventure, Lindsay brought his largest work, "A Cantata of Psalms," to life and was the guest conductor at the piece's premiere at Trinity Church. Lindsay continues to inspire those around him through his charm, passion for life and enthusiasm for music.
