Grange Students support Chester Cathedral’s Grand Organ Appeal

Five organ pupils from The Grange, along with their teacher, former Director of Music Andrew Millinchip, raised over £600 in sponsorship as they presented an hour-long recital on Chester Cathedral's famous Grand Organ recently.

The organ, which is in use every day, needs some extensive restoration work and the cathedral's Organ Marathon event was an opportunity to support the fund-raising effort.

The pupils, who ranged from beginner to Grade 7 standard, included Rosie Allen, Harry Barker, Hannah Bloor, Oscar Jolliffe and James Todd, and the programme ranged from Bach to Hindemith.

Andrew Millinchip, pictured here with the pupils after the recital, commented, "It was great to be able to support this event, which provided a wonderful opportunity for our students to play in the cathedral.  It is lovely to see interest in the organ really taking off at The Grange".
