This concert will feature a FEURICH Model 218 grand piano which has been generously loaned to the Howdenshire Music Project for the rest of this year's concert series by the FEURICH piano company in Vienna. Our previous piano (100+ years old and on loan) is in very poor condition and so we are raising funds to acquire a new permanent instrument to serve our local community and audiences for many years to come. Our aim is to purchase outright the wonderful FEURICH piano used in this and the rest of this year's concerts. To this end, we have launched the Howdenshire Grand Piano Appeal.
Any donations towards the Howdenshire Grand Piano Appeal would be very gratefully received. You can donate online at:
Or if you would prefer to donate via cheque, please send a cheque payable to 'Howdenshire Music Project' to 15 Kensington Gardens, Howden, East Yorkshire, DN14 7JN.
