47 Supporters Evening for Guildhall School at Milton Court

Monday 17th November 2014

The Third Warden, the Clerk and I attended a Guildhall School of Music & Drama supporters evening at Milton Court. We were hosted by two Tobacco Pipe Maker Scholars, Elizabeth Karani (Soprano, Opera Course) and Ricky Gore (Violin, Orchestral Artistry) who gave us an insight into student life at Guildhall. We explored the new Concert Hall with its moving halls to adjust the acoustics to the performance being given and moving stage with two air conditioned rooms below in which the two Steinway grand pianos are stored when not on stage. We also saw a brief demonstration of the equipment in the theatre. Milton Court is an wonderful facility for the extremely talented students at Guildhall. The support from our Benevolent Fund is much apppreciated. Long may the link continue.
