The Suzuki Music Institute of Dallas has just acquired a 1940s Concert Grand Baldwin. It is a beautiful piano, but still needs a lot of work to restore its sound to beautiful concert grand royalty. From a whole set of new keys and strings, to accompanying adjustments and pins, to refinishing the body, it needs a lot of work. Please help us Beautify our Baldwin so the students at our non-profit Suzuki school can continue to love the gift of music!
Anyone/family who donates $80 or more will get to sign one of our Piano Keys! It will be your “Key Signature” and will go up on our “Beautify our Baldwin” display in the common area!
Anyone who donates $200 or more, in addition to your “Key Signature” will also receive ONE FREE PIANO TUNING from the “Famous Feather” a.k.a. David Featherstone, Master Piano Technician (Available to the first FOUR (4) donations over $200).
