Canvas, a concert series in LA

Ken and I are  thrilled to be traveling to LA in February for the dedication of one of his Steinway rebuilds.   A beautiful model A, this piano is the one I spoke of in an earlier post, A Musical Bond; Sustaining Level.   The instrument was donated to Canvas by a very generous Minnesota pianist.  Besides being able to attend a Canvas event live and see the piano in her new home, Ken will be part of the program discussing piano restoration and fielding questions.   It’s our honor.

I’ve copied a snatch of what Lynn Hutchinson, founder of Canvas,  has publicized about the event:

“As many of you know, the beautiful piano that we have been able to enjoy this year as part of the Canvas experience was a gift from a patron. An entirely unexpected gesture coming out of a one-time meeting, his desire in giving me this gift was to bless you – the Canvas audience – with its beauty.

We are honoring this extraordinary act of generosity by creating the Canvas Da Capo Scholarship fund. All proceeds from this event will be collected and put aside to be given to a young professional-track musician in need of financial assistance for his or her studies.”

Ken and Karen, we are looking forward to seeing you again at this wonderful event in L.A. It’s a gorgeous piano — can’t wait to hear Ken talk about it.
