Welcoming back the O2 Silver Clef Awards 2022

Since 1976, the O2 Silver Clef Awards have raised over £11 million for Nordoff Robbins. On 1st July 2022, we come together once more to celebrate and honour some of the greatest names in music. All whilst raising funds for our vital work in music therapy.

Our 2022 O2 Silver Clef Award Winners

A very special auction of George Michael's personal Bechstein piano

At our 2022 O2 Silver Clef Awards, we have the immense privilege of hosting the auction of pop icon George Michael’s piano.

The Bechstein Grand piano, which George fell in love with and bought, stood in his home in London for many years. It has been generously donated to us by George Michael’s Estate, and continues his renowned charitable legacy and support of Nordoff Robbins.

This special auction will also be live-streamed at 2pm on Friday 1st July for online audiences around the world.
