This Week At The Classical Station

by Rob Kennedy

Support The Classical Station - 1913 Baldwin Baby Grand

A generous listener has given the station a piano. Now, when listeners give us things like their CD collections, a desk or chair, or plants for the entrance to our studios, we can find a place for them on our premises. A grand piano is more difficult to handle. That's where our friends at Hopper Piano come in. They have very kindly given this lovely piano a temporary home until somebody decides to buy it. And all of the purchase proceeds will go to The Classical Station.

Have a look at the video. Listen to Dan McHugh play Scarlatti. If you are interested in seeing and playing the piano with a view to acquiring it, visit Hopper Piano's website and make those arrangements. Or call 919-755-0185 to schedule an appointment.
