Piano sale benefits music

Tickle the ivories and help the Department of Music in Arts & Sciences.

Pianos from the music department are on sale via private appointment and at a public sale from noon-5 p.m. March 18 in Blewett Hall.

Private appointments may be arranged by calling 935-4500.

The well-maintained pianos are being offered to the University community at reduced prices before being offered to the general public.

Brand names include Steinway, Baldwin, Boston, Essex, Hamilton, Kawai, Yamaha and Wurlitzer. Some are less than 1 year old and carry a 10-year warranty; financing and delivery are available.

The pianos are part of a loan program through which manufacturers provide pianos to the music department to supplement the pianos the department owns.

Proceeds benefit the loan program.
