We are a group of adult pianists from the Elmitt Piano Academy in Arlesey, Bedfordshire, who meet regularly to practise performing. We are all piano teachers or advanced amateurs and are passionate about continuing to develop our playing. We all have regular lessons with Kate Elmitt or Masayuki Tayama.

We take part in many events locally, including concertos with local orchestras and masterclasses with concert pianists. Several of us are regular participants at Chetham's International Summer School and our members include the 1st prize winners of the Epta Adult Piano Competitions in 2015 and 2016.

Julie Lawal was a very enthusiastic member of our academy before her marriage and we are determined to do what we can to help her and Adewale in their appeal to fund his essential operation. Our recent masterclass with Noriko Ogawa raised over £1200 and we are continuing to raise money.

We are greatly looking forward to our fund-raising recital on 27 October in Ely Cathedral. It will include piano solos by Chopin, Debussy, Cecilia McDowall, Medtner, Messiaen, Schumann and Ravel.

Admission by Cathedral ticket or pass
