The Newton South Orchestra and Madrigals held a benefit concert yesterday to raise money for the Nathan Alden Robinson Scholarship Fund.
Robinson, a 15 year old freshman at North and talented musician, died of rare flu complications on Friday, March 14 at the Children’s Hospital in Boston.
Robinson’s parents, Don Robinson and Stacey Alden, created the Scholarship Fund in remembrance of their son. All of the money raised at the concert will go to this fund.
“We at South wanted to honor his memory and support his parents. His father is a trombone teacher, and his mom is a violin teacher. Some of our students here at South have them as instrumental teachers, music department head John Rossini said.
Principal Brian Salzer was in full support of the benefit concert. “I think it showed great sensitivity on the part of Doctor Rossini that this is a boy from Newton and more specifically a boy from the Newton Music Department. It shows how much we care about the students in Newton and that it doesn’t matter what school you go to. Salzer said.
