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.
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".
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".
