7 PM: Find out the “Secrets of Steinway” in a pre-concert talk with Simon Phillips, Island Regional Manager at Tom Lee Music. Pre-concert talk seating is limited, RSVP recommended. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat.
In the main lobby, the School of Music will have a special display of parts from a deconstructed piano shipped directly from the Steinway factory in New York City. Learn more about the inner workings of a Steinway by getting a closer look at the mechanisms that technicians and piano rebuilders are often only privy to.
Steinway artist Mark Anderson has appeared as recitalist, soloist and chamber musician in Japan, throughout the former Soviet Union, Europe and Great Britain, Ireland and North America. His recordings and performances have been met with widespread critical acclaim. Anderson is Associate Professor of Piano at UBC’s School of Music and is owner and Executive Director of New World Music Academy in Pleasanton, California
The UVic School of Music became Canada’s very first all-Steinway school in 2008 when we acquired 63 new Steinway pianos — 49 uprights for practice rooms and faculty offices, 13 grand pianos for the teaching faculty and rehearsal halls, and a Steinway Concert Grand for the Phillip T. Young Recital Hall. Our students, faculty, guest performers and concert goers have been appreciating the beauty and quality of these incredible instruments ever since.
Proceeds from this concert will benefit our Steinway Legacy Fund, dedicated to the essential maintenance of these valuable instruments. Donate online.
