Averil Cameron retires as Warden of Keble

Thursday 30 September 2010

Professor Dame Averil Cameron retired on 30 September as Warden of Keble after sixteen distinguished years' service, during which the College has seen remarkable transformations: a sounder financial base, wonderful new buildings and facilities, and an exciting academic vision built around the Acland site acquired in 2004. The College marked the occasion with a concert which brought together Keble musicians past and present, masterminded by Music Fellow, Simon Whalley. Highlights included the moving Brahms serious songs performed by Robert Lloyd, the unforgettable Milhaud Scaramouche piano duet by David Owen Norris and Marios Papadopolous, and Keble's loose adaptation of Rogers' and Hammerstein's, There's nothing like a dame sung by the choir. It was also the occasion for the unveiling of a new watercolour of Averil by Bob Tulloch which will hang in the Lodgings.
