Roger Paul, Director of Music at Ellesmere College commented, 'Former pupil, Peter Messenger, who sadly died in his early twenties, was a very talented musician. His family set-up the Memorial Fund to financially assist Ellesmere College music scholars with their music studies at Summer Schools. The pupils who are performing are all talented musicians and we are also delighted to be welcoming a group of local artists to join us for the evening.'
