Glee inspired school choir in need of new piano

School choir that has been inspired by Glee is in search of a new piano.

The extremely popular US music drama TV series Glee has served as inspiration for an after school choir club that is in desperate need for a new piano.

At the moment, the current piano hits all the right notes – to a degree. Some of the keys don't work, which can make things a little challenging to say the least, reported the Peterlee Mail.

Sarah Barton, a nursery teacher at Golden Flatts School and the club's organiser, told the newspaper she has always wanted to run a school choir but that school children often assumed it was for older people.

Since the choir was introduced, it has proved to be a huge hit with school children aged between seven and 11.

"With Glee coming on television they have all got really into it. They’ve heard all the songs and seen bits of the programme. When Don’t Stop Believing was in the charts they loved it.

"We’ve done lots of concerts and performances around the town this summer."

Glee, which first hit the TV airwaves back in 2009, has won a raft of awards including Emmys as well as Screen Actors Guild Awards.
