Friends mourn former music shop owner and Tory candidate Blanche Mundlak

The violin teacher passed away at a care home two months after suffering a stroke

09 March, 2017 — By Richard Osley

A COMMUNITY campaigner who ran a music shop in Camden Town has passed away in a care home, friends said last night (Wednesday).

Blanche Mundlak, a former Conservative party council election candidate known for her forthright views and formidable approach to sharing them, ran the St Cecilia music shop.

She also worked as a violin teacher and conducted the Orion Orchestra for nearly 40 years. Friends in the local Tory party remembered her uncompromising criticism when she felt the party had not quite got things right. Ms Mundlak, who lived in Oakley Square, was good friends with the former minister Ann Widdecombe, who visited her after she suffered a stroke at the end of last year.
