Investing in our future musicians
Through sponsorship and involvement in forward thinking programmes for young organists, we help to provide access to music and musical development to schools and ecclesiastic communities.
We feel it is important to give young musicians as many opportunities as possible to practice on good quality instruments – to fully embrace the wonder that is organ music. We’ve had the privilege of working with some distinguished music schools like the dedicated team at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama where weinstalled a beautiful new digital organ for their 608-seat Concert Hall.
We were also pleased to be chosen as their preferred organ supplier as they are the UK’s leading provider of specialist music training at the under-18 level with nearly 2,500 students in Junior Guildhall and the Centre for Young Musicians.
For the Yarm School in North East England we were delighted to install a Regent Classic instrument in the school’s stunning Princess Alexandra Auditorium. We tailored the organ according to the school’s requirements and custom-built the Regent Classic in a Cavaille-Coll style console, which they were pleased to have, as this is found in only a few schools in the UK.
Built to the same standards as a conventional pipe organ, but occupying just a fraction of the space, the instrument has 69 speaking stops across four manuals, which allows the accompaniment of any choral or orchestral work.
Practice instruments are also an issue for some schools, so we were pleased to be able to provide Kings College Cambridge with an Envoy 23-s, one of our most popular instruments which not only has our phenomenal built-in sound platform ‘Physis’, but is also priced perfectly for schools.
For many establishments with fine pipe organs -finding time to play on them is a constant challenge. And for organ scholars this becomes a real issue in getting enough practise time in. Our digital church organs not only provide the extra practice time, but can also be used with headphones to help with odd practice times (and not disturb resident scholars).
Discover how we can work with your school to enhance your practice instruments and encourage a new generation of musicians.
