George Michael's piano auction raises £200,000 for music therapy

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

We are delighted that the winning bid for this treasured instrument was a £200,000 donation to Nordoff Robbins.

Special, heartfelt thanks go to George’s Estate for donating the piano to us to auction at the O2 Silver Clef Awards. We’d also like to thank our winning bidder for their generosity, and we hope their new piano brings them many years of joy.
