OUTSTANDING NEW MUSIC FACILITY OPENS WITH ‘ALL-STEINWAY SCHOOL’ STATUS
With the purchase of four new Essex upright pianos in 2010, Stowe School entered into the ‘All-Steinway School’ initiative.
Over the next three years, Stowe’s fundraising campaign secured additional funds to continue in their piano replacement programme, culminated in December 2013 with the delivery of a further 22 pianos from Steinway & Sons to coincide with the opening of the new music building.
To formally designate Stowe as an All-Steinway School and celebrate the opening of the school’s outstanding new music building, students performed on the new Steinway Concert Grand in the presence of Prince Michael of Kent, along with the Russian National Orchestra, conducted by Carlo Ponti.
“To have witnessed such inspirational musical extravaganza was truly an honour,” says Keith Glazebrook of Steinway & Sons.
