Piano Repair Benefit Concert

Join us next  Saturday, Jan 20 at 7 pm for a concert featuring the works of Debussy, Fauré and Gaubert!

We have already raised $6,000 of the $10,000 needed to maintain and make repairs on our beautiful Steinway. Though the piano is in good condition, for the long-term we will need to repair the sound board. Help us reach our goal while enjoying the musical talents of Jim Reilly, Béatrice Giere, and Claudia Schnitker.
