A new fund is to be created in Tony’s name, to help provide composition lessons, either in person or online, for young people in the UK and overseas who could not otherwise afford them.
It will be a particularly fitting tribute to Tony, who would often quietly and generously use his own personal resources to help young composers (and sometimes performers too). He would always do this anonymously, and many people do not realise to this day that Tony was contributing to their musical development in this way.
Tony’s family has agreed that the fund will be run by Alison Cox’s charity, which is called ‘The Commonwealth Resounds’. This organisation is a fully registered charity and an accredited NGO, which supports music education with a special focus upon musical composition.
If you have any questions or suggestions, are sending funds from overseas, or wish to send a cheque by post, please feel free to email Alison Cox email@example.com
