Fabulous fundraising flute

A generous bequest has resulted in a boost to our education funds

Gareth Davies, LSO principal flute

A Wivenhoe resident has very generously donated the proceeds from the sale at auction of a vintage and much-loved Haynes flute.

The bequest means we can provide instruments that can be used for participants in our learning and participation programme who would not otherwise be able to learn to play.

We asked Gareth Davies, Principal Flute and Chairman of the LSO, and Haynes Artist Gareth McClearnon, to organise an online charity auction. The auction was won by an exceptional individual who is a passionate flute player, collector and maker.

Not only did all proceeds from the sale go to Roman River Music’s education programme, but Haynes Ltd have donated another flute to us, as a wonderful extra bonus.

Watch the brilliant video they have made.

Huge thanks to all the wonderful people involved in this, all of whom have given their time completely free.

The proceeds of the sale will go towards our 2017 – 18 education programme – details here.
