Spring 2022 saw the arrival of the much-anticipated All-Steinway School status for Durham University. Working in partnership with the globally-recognised piano makers, we welcomed a number of the world class instruments - the largest investment of any University in the UK.
This marriage with Steinway is the perfect combination…I can guarantee to all our students that they will have the best available to them.
A number of our musically talented students had the rare opportunity to travel to Steinway Hall in London to take part in a prestigious masterclass. After auditioning to attend the event, the students were delighted at having the once in a lifetime opportunity to play a piece in the wonderful setting of Steinway Hall under the expert guidance of Steinway artist, Charles Owen.
The exceptionally high level of expertise, skill and attention to detail that goes into the making of Steinway pianos was mesmerizing; I very much look forward to welcoming such wonderful Steinway pianos in Durham.
