We are delighted to announce that one of our final year students from the Department of Philosophy has just jointly won a University music prize.

Amy Poulter, who has just finished her BA (Hons) in Philosophy and English Language & Linguistics, was awarded the Colyer-Fergusson Music Prize. The prize is awarded to a student who has made a major contribution to the organisation of music at the University.

Amy was awarded the prize for her exceptional all-round behind-the-scenes organising and admin skills as Concert Band and Big Band Assistant, in which she plays alto saxophone. This involved liaising with the conductor, Ian Swatman, helping to set-up rehearsals and co-ordinating, circulating and collecting all the many sheets of music that go into the instruments folders (a somewhat arduous and thankless task). She is also had the mammoth task of running this year's student battle-of-the bands event, Keynestock, in her capacity as College President.

Amy won the prize jointly with Inger Kviseth, from the School of Politics and International Relations, for her role as Chamber Choir Assistant and Minerva Voices Assistant. The prize was awarded on Tuesday 6 June, during Summer Music Week, at a special presentation alongside a music scholars' lunchtime recital.
