I got word this week that the Kennedy Center is going to be selling some of its Steinway pianos at a public sale starting December 19th. Up for grabs — I’m sure at a pretty penny – are the same pianos that have been used at the Kennedy Center for performances and practice. The inventory “includes grands, baby grands, studio pianos, and professional uprights.” No doubt that this is a very cool opportunity for the music lover with cash to burn! If only I were much more liquid I would purchase one of these for my dad, a certified piano lover, for sure.
If you’re one of those lucky music lovers with a few extra many-thousand dollars just sitting around I’d be happy to give you access to the pre-sale, which will take place before the opportunity opens to the public. You’ll just have to promise me that I can let me dad borrow it for a few practice sessions..
