Alumni Fund projects

Donations strike a chord

Chris AdamsNews of your donations are music to the ears of three gifted students.

Chris Adams, a second year Biomedical Sciences student, has received the Alumni Fund Award for Music enabling him to purchase a soprano saxophone for use during his time at NTU, after which the instrument will remain at the University. He said: "I'm really grateful to alumni for their donations. It means that I can branch out from the alto sax into playing soprano."

Fellow orchestra member Sarah Davey was awarded funding for music lessons. The second year Forensic Science student plays the clarinet and saxophone. She also played the violin as a child and is a selftaught pianist.

Meanwhile, third year Visual Arts student Ellie Fieldsend is this year’s recipient of the Clifford Beck Music Award – an annual scholarship set up in memory of a former lecturer. Ellie plays the piano and is also a member of the NTU Choir, NTU Chamber Choir and Youth Choir UK. She will be putting the money towards tuition for both singing and piano lessons. She said: "Music is an important part of my life. I would like to say a big thank you to Clifford Beck's family for such a kind donation and giving me the chance to carry on with my piano and singing lessons."
