Live in an elevator

Fundraising escapades for BBC Children in Need 2014

The Leeds College of Music lift was the scene of a new first in musical entertainment in November, as Pop pathway leader Danny Cope donned a vintage tux to entertain students and staff with live elevator music.

He was joined by Dale Perkins (Head of Undergraduate Studies) on his custom built ukulele, and Paul Abbott (Head of Events and Enterprise) on the idiophonic bucket.

Elsewhere, classical guitar quartet Las Cuerdas – featuring Classical and Jazz students Jess Farnden, Max Coleman, Kieran Gunter and David Kelly (pictured right, or below if you're reading on mobile) – serenaded shoppers in Victoria Quarter with Christmas classics, as part of Nick Ahad's breakfast show on BBC Radio Leeds.

Between them, they raised £254.45 for the 2014 Children in Need appeal. Take a look at our Storify to see more photos and videos.
