School of Music Visits Steinway & Sons Factory

Steinwayny.JPGIn early September, a group from the School of Music went to Steinway & Sons in New York City to tour the factory and select a Concert Grand (Model D) for Massey Concert Hall and two Music Room Grands (Model B) for Harton Recital Hall. Piano faculty members Dan Landes, Kris Elsberry, Anthony Belfiglio and Bruce Dudley selected the pianos.
In the selection room, the faculty gave an impromptu performance for the other members of the Belmont group; Dean Cynthia Curtis, Sarah Davis, Friends of the Arts at Belmont Secretary/Treasurer Anne Knestrick and Steinway Piano Gallery of Nashville’s Bill Metcalfe and Brandon Herrenbruck.
The purchase of the pianos is part of the process for the School of Music to become an All-Steinway School.
