This reception is being given in honor of SLU music alumni and to kick off the fundraising campaign for the new All-Steinway Initiative.
Prior to the reception Friday afternoon, the department will take delivery of three new pianos from Steinway Gallery -- two 7' Model B Studio Grand pianos and one 5' 7" Model M baby grand. The new instruments will be rolled in, set up, and immediately performed on by students and faculty, and interested alumni.
This initial purchase was made possible by a generous gift from the President's Office.
The "All Steinway School" designation is awarded to an institution by Steinway in recognition of that institution's commitment to excellence. With the signing of the All-Steinway Initiative agreement on August 10, SLU began the process of becoming an "All Steinway School" and when all the required guidelines have been met, the University will be listed on the "All Steinway School" roster, a small but select list of institutions.
Light refreshments will be served and the public is welcome.
