Brentwood School have been approached by Variety, the Children’s Charity to offer an extremely generous donation from Mr Bernard Michaelson and his wife Sarah, for Brentwood to have a Sound Beam.
The Michaelsons many years ago owned the most famous music shop in Liverpool, one which was very much a part of the Beatles Era.
The shop was called "Hessys" and was frequented by everyone including the Beatles and Brian Epstein.
Sharon Michaelson their daughter (the Sound beam Room is named after Sharon) was an employee of Variety, the Children's Charity in London, and Sharon very sadly died suddenly which obviously broke the hearts of her parents.
Bernard and Sarah wanted something to honour Sharon’s memory, and decided to support Liverpool (Sharon's home town ) Manchester (Sharon went to University ) and London where Sharon worked, all with "Sound Beam Rooms ".
Princes School in Liverpool now have a Sound Beam Room, and Brentwood School now have a Sound Beam Room, and hopefully by end of this year London will also have a Sound Beam Room.
Music for young people is very close to the Michaelsons hearts and the Sound Beam rooms give all young people that opportunity to enjoy music.
Sound Beam is sophisticated, innovative technological equipment which will allow all of our young people to access music in a new and exciting way.
We are immensely grateful for Mr and Mrs Michaelson for choosing Brentwood High School and Community College to have a sound beam, and we are very much looking forward to the official opening ceremony Thursday 2nd February, when Mr and Mrs Michaelson will cut the ribbon and officially open our new sound beam room.
