Event Archive - Steinway & UVic 12 Year Celebration:
Find out the “secrets of Steinway” in a pre-concert talk at 7PM with Simon Phillips, Island Regional Manager at Tom Lee Music. Parts from a deconstructed piano—shipped directly from the Steinway factory in New York City—will be on display, providing an opportunity to get a closer look at the mechanisms that technicians and piano rebuilders are often only privy to. Seating for the talk is limited, RSVP recommended. Please email [email protected] to reserve a seat.
The School of Music became Canada’s very first all-Steinway school in 2008 when the university acquired 63 new Steinway pianos. All proceeds from this concert will benefit the Steinway Legacy Fund, dedicated to the enhancement and expansion of the School of Music’s valuable family of instruments.
