In Memory of Alex Ross

Sadly, Alex Ross, a keen double bass player for EYMW, was the innocent victim of a car accident just before Christmas 2018 at the age of 19.

Alex was a loving, vibrant, energetic and friendly member of our orchestra, not to mention his incredible talents as a musician. He was a great friend to so many people and his incredible sense of humour and spirited, exuberant nature will be missed by us all.

Alex and his family were always keen to support our ventures and it was a great privilege to play double bass alongside him. We know Alex was a firm believer in the ethos of European Youth Music - developing international friendship through music making - and we are sure he would have still been actively involved for many years to come.

In Alex's memory, his parents have kindly offered to donate money on a regular basis towards European Youth Music Week.
