Music faculty and students from Pellissippi State Community College will perform for the Steinway Society of Knoxville on Sunday, Jan. 30. The event, which is free and open to the public, takes place at the American Piano Gallery in Farragut. Set to perform are pianists, vocalists and instrumentalists playing violin, guitar and saxophone.
The Steinway Society of Knoxville is the not-for-profit arm of the American Piano Gallery. Its mission includes promoting musical understanding and appreciation, as well as offering musical listening opportunities.
Pellissippi State has been educating musicians for more than 20 years. For the 2010-2011 academic year, the Pellissippi State Foundation awarded more than 100 music-related scholarships to more than 80 Pellissippi State students. Bill Brewer serves as Pellissippi State’s Music program coordinator.
In 2010, the Foundation launched the All Steinway School campaign, which seeks to elevate the Music program to world-class status by raising $600,000 for the placement of 13 Steinway pianos in studios, practice rooms and performance venues. If successful, Pellissippi State will become the first All Steinway community college in Tennessee, the fourth All Steinway community college in the nation, and one of only about 120 All Steinway colleges and universities in the world.
The Steinway Society of Knoxville will serve light refreshments. The program begins at 3 p.m., and the American Piano Gallery is located at 11651 Parkside Dr.
