An Epic Gala!

Keene State College is closer to earning the prestigious All Steinway School designation, following the All-Steinway, All Together Gala and Celebration! More than 200 friends of Keene State College Music gathered to celebrate musical excellence and hear students and special guests perform a variety of pieces for two, four, and eight hands. The event raised $35,000 toward the final instrument to be purchased: a nine-foot long Steinway & Sons SPIRIO | r, the world’s finest high-resolution player piano capable of live capture and playback.

To demonstrate the revolutionary capabilities of the Steinway SPIRIO | r, junior Piano & Violin Performance major Nabil Hetman demonstrated one of the special features of the instrument. He pre-recorded the first movement of Cesar Franck’s infamously complex Sonata for Piano and Violin, then at the Gala he performed on violin, accompanying himself at the piano!
