February 13, 2013 | Alon Goldstein Recital at the Vets
Friends and fans of the Philharmonic were treated to an intimate performance by Alon Goldstein on our new Steinway Model D Concert Grand Piano. Members of our Key Players Society were even allowed to sit on the stage! The recital was held to dedicate the new piano, which was a gift from the Champlin Foundations. Mr. Goldstein, along with members of our artistic staff, personally selected this piano at the Steinway & Sons factory in New York. See pictures from the recital HERE and watch a video about their search for the piano HERE.
