Shenandoah University wants this sound to carry it's conservatory to All-Steinway status. Students, faculty and staff came together to celebrate the reality of getting closer to that goal.
17 pianos were delivered to campus. In order to be considered an All-Steinway School, ninety percent of the pianos owned by the school need to be Steinway or Steinway-designed pianos.
"And the last three years we have gone as an institution from number 48 to number 27 in the south so it is no big surprise that when we thought about pianos to join this amazing piano faculty and amazing students we would chose Steinway. The best piano in the world," said President of Shenandoah University Tracy Fitzsimmons.
The All-Steinway initiative is estimated to cost three million dollars. SU is on it's way to becoming one of only six other conservatories in the country that have this designation.
