Pupils Hit the Right Note with New Piano

Pupils at Ellesmere College are set to tickle the ivories of a new baby grand piano that has been funded by donations from their alumni, through the Ellesmerian Club and by parents and friends through the Enhance Ellesmere programme, which aims to enrich the educational experience for students and enables further investment into bursary programmes at the College.

Richard Morris, Chairman of the Ellesmerian Club, said "It's always a pleasure to give something back to the school which has contributed so much to its students both past and present. The baby grand piano is a symbol of the partnerships formed at Ellesmere and this new addition to the music facilities will ensure that music scholars will receive the very best in musical training".

The piano will be used every day of the week and during public concerts held at the College, it's first major outing will be at the 3 Choirs Concert which will be held on May 17th. John Paul, 18, who is looking forward to studying Music at Oxford University, said "This really does provide school musicians with a chance to practice on one of the best designed pianos in the world. It's certainly going to help with their development and support, their ambitions to perform with music conservatoires and becoming professional musicians".
