A Key News Flash: Pianos For Sale!
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly
Some weeks ago, we wrote up, for New York magazine’s Best of New York issue, a piano tuner…and in doing our research, we felt a bit wistful for yesteryear, when we used to play the piano. Well, if you’ve ever wanted one yourself, this is your lucky week.
Every year, Lincoln Center enjoys, as a letter to our mailbox puts it, “the benefit of new Yamaha pianos made available for our use through an ongoing arrangement with the Yamaha Corporation of America and their agent Frank & Camille’s Keyboard Centers...At the end of the year, these pianos are made available for purchase to the public.”
Starting tomorrow, Thursday the 29th and continuing through Saturday the 31st, you can view the pianos Lincoln Center is now parting with. The selection will comprise not only those loaned to Lincoln Center but also those loaned to the New 42nd Street Studios, and includes Yamaha baby grands, concert grands, professional uprights, decorator vertical pianos (we have no clue whatsoever what those are, but could hazard a guess), and in addition there will be some “pre-owned” and “like new” pianos from Baldwin, Steinway, and others….
This is a must-go-to sale if you have ever wanted a piano.
The general sale, open to the public, is Sunday, April 1 from noon to 5pm. For further information and to schedule a viewing appointment for the next three days, call 800-667-6960. The location of the sale and viewing is New 42nd Street Studios, 229 W. 42nd St. btw. Seventh & Eighth Aves.
