Steinway & UVic 12 Year Celebration: Emerging Steinway Stars
March 12, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us for a special concert showcasing some of the brightest piano students from the UVic School of Music. This concert will be performed on Steinway’s SPIRIO|r, the world’s finest high-resolution player piano capable of live performance capture and playback.
7:30 PM Pre-concert SPIRIO|r demonstration with Graham Blank, Piano Division Manager of Tom Lee Music.
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 refurbishers are often only privy to.
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 enhancement and expansion of our valuable family of instruments. Donate online.
