Letter to the New Zealand Broadcasting Service requesting broadcast of a benefit concert in the Opera House, Palmerston North, to raise funds to send Alan Loveday to the United Kingdom for musical tuition. Alan Raymond Loveday was born 29 February 1928 in Palmerston North, to Margaret (nee Rickard) and Leslie Loveday. Playing the violin from an very early age, a local committee was set up to raise funds to send the 11-year-old Alan with his mother Margaret to the UK for violin lessons, where he became a pupil of Albert Sammons. Alan married pianist Ruth Stanfield in 1952, and they had two children Rosalind and Ian. He had a distinguished career as a violinist, including being a professor at the RCM. He died 12 April 2016.
