The Secrets of Steinway
July 9th at 7pm

This informative seminar will include information about the most important patents all the way down to the most intriguing nuances that go into the making of a Steinway.

The new series combines interview and performance, featuring guest hosts and artists whose work enriches Music City’s jazz and blues scenes. It offers audiences the rare chance to to hear unique and personal accounts of life both on and away from the stage. The “sessions” will include short performances and a Q&A segment for audience interaction.

Six outstanding Blair piano students perform J.S. Bach’s six partitas, BWV 825-830. Originally composed for harpsichord and commonly referred to as the “German Suites,” they were the last set of harpsichord suites that Bach composed, and the most technically demanding. Performance by Young Steinway Artist Thomas Ridgway, June Kim, Kazuki Takizawa, William Woodard, David Rodgers and Zachary Kleiman.

In attendance for this concert will be Linda Tozer, Regional Director for Society of St. Andrew, Tennessee.

The Society of St. Andrew, Tennessee Gleaning Network has rescued and distributed 5.5 million pounds of produce to those in need in Tennessee. This has resulted in approximately 16.5 million servings of food going to Tennessee’s hungry.

Through the Tennessee Gleaning Network, volunteers are coordinated across the state gleaning fields, farmers’ markets, produce houses simply picking up the food that is left behind. SoSA volunteers represent various church denominations, synagogues, youth groups, civic organizations, and individuals who want to make a difference in their community.
