The grand piano in the picture will be coming to the Polish Hall real soon now!
The Seattle Polish Foundation entered into a purchase agreement with a private seller for a 2008 concert-class Steinway grand piano in an excellent condition for the Polish Cultural Center Dom Polski. The grand piano campaign raised about $59,000 as of 12/22/22, and the purchase price is $60,000. With the transport and other costs, we need about $2,500 to close on it. The SPF will have till the end of January 2023 to conclude the purchase. Please help us get it!
The piano is the Steinway & Sons Model B, which is the best grand piano model for medium size concert halls such as the upper hall at the Polish Cultural Center. The Model B is widely used in musical academies such as the Juilliard School and praised by professional pianists. This particular piano has been tested and has a beautiful sound and is in an excellent shape. It has also been signed by Lang Lang. The piano will have a cover, security lock and a climatization unit installed to keep it at a steady temperature.
Please listen to Marzena testing this instrument (this video clip was shot with a phone).
