The Year of the Piano

The Performing Arts Center has a new 9-foot Steinway D piano, handmade at the company’s factory in Hamburg, Germany. Many pianists enjoy the instruments made there, finding the German pianos have crystal clarity and warmth and a distinctly singing tone.  This season we will explore the new piano’s sounds and have invited a variety of artists from diverse musical styles to showcase all that it can do.
