Trinity Laban buys five new Steinways with £500,000 donation from Trinity College London





Renowned musical conservatoire Trinity Laban took delivery of five handcrafted Steinway B grand pianos this week thanks to a donation of £500,000 from international exam board Trinity College London. The pianos, which each take three years to produce at Steinway’s Hamburg factory, are to be housed at the conservatoire’s iconic King Charles Court campus at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich; cementing the two organisations’ mutual mission to promote and support musical performance and education across the globe.





Professor Anthony Bowne, Principal of Trinity Laban, commented:

 “We are incredibly grateful for this exceptional gift from Trinity College of London. While studying with us, our talented piano students deserve the very best instruments, and we’re thrilled that this donation will further enhance our world-class facilities and equip our students with the tools to match their ambition.

The conservatoire has an immensely important relationship with the exam board. A large number of students benefit each year from TCL Scholarships, which provide vital support for their study. TCL’s contribution also enables ongoing improvements that allow students to train in a world-class environment.

CEO of Trinity College London Sarah Kemp says that:

 “We are delighted to be able to make this donation for such a very deserving cause, made in loving memory of Alan Britten CBE, who was a trustee of both Trinity Laban and Trinity College London and who gave many years of dedicated service to both organisations.

This unique gift, reflecting the long standing relationship between Trinity College London and Trinity Laban will allow even more young musicians the access to world-class instruments for practice and performance.
