Ackworth School in West Yorkshire is proud that it is now a member of the All-Steinway Group of Schools.
The School has taken delivery of 10 new Steinway pianos recently, making it only the 15th school in the UK to be admitted to this prestigious group.
To celebrate this occasion, there was an original 10 x piano composition featuring current and past students, written by the School’s Director of Music, Daniel Marks, himself an accomplished pianist. This performance took place in the Ackworth School Meeting House.
The innovation has been made possible by the support of Old Scholars of the School, and will ensure the very highest level of music tuition is available to its students.
Director of Music at Ackworth, Dan Marks said:
“I am delighted at the acquisition of these wonderful Steinway pianos and I know they will be greatly appreciated by our students. These facilities will be enjoyed by members of the community including Ackworth Concert Society and Pontefract Music Festival for many years to come and will have a large positive impact on a whole generation of young musicians.’
Headmaster, Anton Maree added:
“ We sincerely thank our Old Scholars whose generosity enables Ackworth to become a leading school for music on the north of England”.
