ORC are very excited to announce that they have been granted funding by the NSW Government to purchase a Steinway C-227 Concert Grand Piano in the coming year.
Minister for the Arts Don Harwin and Sam Farraway MLC visited ORC on 3 December to make the announcement.
Orange Regional Conservatorium say on their Facebook page:
“We are absolutely overjoyed with this news and will make sure this new piano will have pride of place in the Recital Hall of the new Orange Regional Conservatorium building.
While here, the Minister was treated to a view into life at the ORC. He observed staff members Lisa Stewart and Stefan Duwe of Acacia Quartet rehearse and perform, and was treated a wonderful performance by young Sophia Duncan, accompanied by David Shaw.”
