Music Newnham Essay Prize

Congratulations to Amy Coates, LVI for gaining a highly commended recognition in the Newnham College, Cambridge Essay Competition.

“In February, I entered an essay competition organised by Newnham College, Cambridge University. We had three different topics to choose from, one based on historical context, one on the role of women, and, my choice of topic, a philosophical debate as to whether it is right for Music to be written to portray an emotion or story. This topic led me to a variety of sources, and I thoroughly enjoyed researching, and using this information to form my own views on the topic. Recently I have discovered that I have been awarded Highly Commended for my work.

This competition has many different subject categories, and I would highly recommend participating, as it is a great way to expand your knowledge and understanding of a subject that you are passionate about.”
