Every year the college awards the Williamson prize for musical performance. This year's winner is Alex Jones, a third-year undergraduate; and normally he would be invited to give a recital to celebrate. He has therefore performed this special piece: online, of course, but able to be shared and enjoyed even more than in the past. It is the first movement of Lauber’s Double Bass Quartet.
Selwyn’s graduate students have made a short video to thank the college for the support they’ve received during the health emergency. Julie Ruth Malone, the MCR’s publicity officer, said: “We wanted to create a lasting show of gratitude that could be shared. This interesting time will be with us all for years to come, and we thought that perhaps such a video could digitally memorialize the care and effort of the college.”
The college’s prestigious annual event – the Ramsay Murray lecture – was given on May 15th by Trevor Phillips OBE. Mr Phillips is a former chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, and an award-winning television producer and presenter as well as writing for a range of publications including The Times.
