Steinway Piano Discounts for Kent State EmployeesPosted Oct. 15, 2012 | Luke Armour and Michael Cellars
Steinway Pianos provide Kent State University faculty, staff and students the opportunity to purchase pianos at discounted rates from Oct. 18 - 20 by appointment.
Kent State’s new “All-Steinway” designation provides discount benefits to all employees, friends and families. Kent State is one of only 145 colleges, universities or conservatories in North America to receive this designation since Steinway’s founding in 1853, according to Ted Good, president and CEO of Steinway Hall - Akron, Inc.
This five-year project was completed by “a very dedicated team of administrators, faculty, alumni and other supporters,” says Denise Seachrist, Ph.D., director of Kent State’s Hugh A. Glauser School of Music.
John Crawford, Ph.D., dean of the College of the Arts, says that Kent State now has a very special alliance with Steinway & Sons. All Kent State employees, alumni, families and friends have the opportunity for three days this coming weekend to purchase the piano of their choice from the local Steinway dealer at the same discounted prices that the university pays for its pianos. There will be pianos of every style, price range and size available. The dealer will also accept old pianos on trade.
Seachrist says that not only will Kent State employees and friends benefit from the low prices; a portion of the overall proceeds will be donated back to Kent State to fund musical arts education and programming.
