New musical arrival at Anglican Church, Ainslie

All Saints Anglican Church has purchased a grand piano using donations to its music trust fund. The Church aims to become a major music venue in the area and will run a series of performances in the next few months.

“it…has the potential to be a significant asset to benefit music across the Canberra community,” said Michael Faragher, All Saints’ Rector. “Although the church is a large building, the new grand piano by itself fills it with music, and there is space around it for chamber orchestras, bands and the like.”

The Church will be holding a Grand Opening recital on Saturday 27 October featuring Canberran pianist Sally Whitwell.

I have been expressly informed by RiotACT that I am Not Allowed to get them sued during my time here. Being nice seems a good way to start off. (also, it’s she)

This is fantastic news.

Those of us with long Canberra memories may remember the grand piano scandal of the early 1990s – when the Arts Council sold a concert grand that had been bought from community funds – a music identity whose name I don’t recall had held concerts over several years, with all-volunteer input, to raise the money for the piano. What did the Arts Council do? Spent the money on a photocopier and the rest into everyday expenses, like photocopier paper and phone calls.
