There were more than 300 piano makers in New England when German immigrant Heinrich Steinweg and five of his sons opened a piano company in New York in 1853. With a simple maxim propelling their enterprise, “build the best piano possible,” they emerged 10 years later as the largest and most successful piano manufacturer in North America. Steinway Artist Robert Wyatt guides you through the compelling family saga with an historical and technical narrative, live performance and film footage of construction practices within the 130 year old Steinway factory in New York. Tickets: $25 at the door.
