Music: Life and music of department alumna to be celebrated in remembrance concert
Ailsa Dixon read music at Durham in the 1950s and went on to have compositions performed by the Brindisi Quartet, Ian Partridge and Lynne Dawson during a particularly successful spell in the 1980s.
Shortly before her death in August 2017, Ailsa’s work began to be recognised again, with the anthem, ‘These things shall be’ premiered by the London Oriana Choir at the Cutty Sark in London, as part of the Five15 project to highlight the work of women composers.
