We were delighted to celebrate with Dalia and Romeo as they received their donated piano as part of the 88 Keys to Inspiration Program. We enjoyed an impromptu performance by Romeo as he demonstrated some of his amazing skills. Congratulations to Dalia and Romeo, and their whole family. We hope that their new piano brings love and the gift of music to their home for a lifetime.
On hand to celebrate with Dalia and Romeo was their family as well as John Wiebe (El Sistema Coordinator), Ayden Soney (Senior Student, El Sistema Program), Matt Wannan (General Manager, Aeolian Hall) and our friends from D&S Pianos who generously tuned and moved the piano.
88 keys to Inspiration is a collaborative program made possible between D&S Pianos and The Aeolian. Both organizations and the community members that donate the pianos believe that every child should have access to a quality education including a rich arts education. Therefore, The Aeolian and D&S Pianos have joined efforts to form a music community-building program bringing quality donated pianos back to life in new homes with young musicians.
