Historic Steinway Unveiling Concert
Please note, this event has expired.
A rare 1973 Steinway & Sons Indiana Black Walnut Concert Grand, newly refurbished by the The Music Gallery in Clearwater, will be unveiled at a special USF dedication performance featuring International Steinway Artist Rebecca Penneys.
One donation leads to another. An anonymous donation to the University of South Florida (USF) of a limited edition Steinway & Sons 1973 Indiana Black Walnut Concert Grand Piano in need of refurbishing received the gift of new life thanks to a $35,000 donation from St. Pete-based and International Steinway Artist Rebecca Penneys, founder/director of the acclaimed Rebecca Penneys Piano Festival (RPPF) at USF.
On Sunday, Jan. 19th, this rare 1973 Steinway & Sons Indiana Black Walnut Concert Grand, newly refurbished by the Clearwater-based Steinway dealer, The Music Gallery, will be unveiled at a special historic concert hosted by the USF School of Music and featuring Penneys at the USF Concert Hall at 2 p.m. The replacement value of this instrument is $247,000.
The newly acquired unique Steinway instrument matches USF’s commitment to the Steinway brand. In 2011, the USF School of Music became a prestigious All-Steinway School, giving USF faculty and students the opportunity to create music from practice room to stage on exclusively Steinway pianos. The total number is 92 with the new addition of the 1973 Concert Grand. All the Steinways were all acquired through the Music Gallery, the exclusive Steinway & Sons dealer of Tampa Bay.
$10/senior and active military
