Scope and content

File consists of a scrapbook (1947-1969) of newspaper clippings, programs, reports, collected by Derek Healey. The scrapbook includes comments from Dr. Herbert Howells on Healey's Royal College of Music (RCM) reports, and the program from "The President's Concert" (November 7, 1957) at RCM for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, who presented medals and prizes, including the Farrar Prize for Composition to Derek Healey. Healey selected a copy of the vocal score for Benjamin Britten's The Turn of the Screw, op. 54 (Hawkes & Son (London) Ltd., 1957); the specially-bound score is also included in this file. The scrapbook also includes programs from Composers Concerts at RCM that Healey organized, often filling in for last-minute cancellations; programs and newspaper clippings from his time in Italy at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana, where he studied with Boris Porena (1961-1963), and programs and newspaper clippings relating to the Cookham Arts Festival (1967) that Healey organized. A complete contents listing is included inside the front cover of the scrapbook.
