School of Music Receives New Pianos Courtesy of The Ahmanson Foundation

< 1

Thanks to a generous philanthropic investment by The Ahmanson Foundation, the School of Music is now home to seven beautiful, new Yamaha pianos. Delivered on October 15, these high-caliber instruments provide a wonderful upgrade to the School of Music’s practice rooms and will be ready to support young musicians in their studies upon a future return to in-person instruction. Access to instruments of this quality will not only provide our students with confidence, but also assist them as they hone their performance and musicianship skills.

We thank The Ahmanson Foundation for this wonderful gift and look forward to hearing beautiful music created by these new pianos through our school’s practice room hallways soon.
