Harlaxton Anniversary DVD
On the 40th anniversary of Harlaxton College, founding class alumnus (and composer) George A. Speckert used his own music to create a video keepsake of the Harlaxton Experience.
The music, which was originally composed in 1971 for the Harlaxton College Dedication Ceremony and augmented in 1996 for the 25th anniversary, is paired with video and images from the campus and surrounding villages, creating a beautiful portrait of Harlaxton. Thanks to George’s incredible generosity, “An English Experience: A Portrait of Harlaxton College” is now available as a gift to those donors who gives $500 or more to any Harlaxton fund, including:
- The Harlaxton Society fund or endowed scholarship fund
- The Harlaxton Annual Fund
- The Lion Terrace Fund
