One student, Vivien Short reflected on the talk: "I had an amazing and mesmerising evening on Tuesday,” she said, “Hearing the famous Nicola Benedetti talk was incredible. I enjoyed listening to her define music and its lasting importance to the world. Hearing Nicola talk about her attempts and success at providing better music education for children in deprived areas, was deeply inspiring and has made me appreciate all the musical opportunities I’ve been given over the years."
