Kent State University’s College of the Arts recently celebrated the successful conclusion of its Steinway Campaign, raising $2.7 million dollars – enough to purchase nearly 70 new pianos. Generous gifts of donors such as the estate of Elizabeth Fennell, Audio-Technica U.A., the Kent State University Foundation Board, David and Carol Pulk, an anonymous donor and many others who sponsored the effort, enabled the college’s Hugh A. Glauser School of Music to be designated as an All-Steinway School.
