Originally manufactured by Steinway & Sons in New York in 1974, this 9′ model D concert grand piano is now fully restored and ready for the stage again. This instrument was originally selected for concert use at a university here in the Southeast, but after a full life of use, it was ready to be renewed. Every aspect of this piano was meticulously crafted to be faithful to Steinway’s design, using the best possible methods and materials throughout.
