Music to Your Ears (and Eyes)

Fri, Apr 18, 2008

In conjunction with this weekend's screening of the acclaimed documentary Note by Note (about the painstaking process of crafting a Steinway Piano) Graves Piano & Organ Company have generously provided us with two Steinway pianos. A Steinway baby grand is on display by the front desk and a dissected Steinway grand is on display in the Wexner Center lobby. Check out photos of the pianos here.

Don't forget to come early to any of the Note by Note screenings: Wexner Center graduate associate Stephanie Frakes will be tickling the ivories before the Friday and Saturday screenings and at 6:30 Friday night WOSU radio's Christopher Purdy will be offering his insight into the history and legend of the Steinway.

If you've seen the film, leave your thoughts in the comments section.
