Hall Piano Company extends congratulations to our friends at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA. After a very successful fundraising campaign driven by the Vice President of Institutional Advancement, Dr. David Boudreaux, staff from NSU traveled to the Steinway Factory in Long Island, NY to select a Steinway Model D concert grand piano. This piano will now become the centerpiece of the Division of Music at Nicholls State University being featured in concert performances, recitals, master classes, and rehearsals.
NSU faculty Dr. Carol Britt, Dr. Luciana Soares, and Mrs. Donna Sammarco were able to share in a very special experience reserved for a select few in the selection of their piano. Unlike many piano manufacturers, Steinway & Sons promote an individual voice or characteristic in each of their pianos as no two are exactly alike. This allows for an institution like Nicholls State University to hand select a piano that most closely meets their idea of the perfect piano, yet another reason why the Steinway piano is such an overwhelming choice on the concert stage for pianists and represented on 98% of the world’s concert stages. Steinway & Sons factory certified technicians are able to customize the piano even further to meet an institution or individual’s exact preferences. Nicholls State University now joins the ranks of the world’s most prestigious concert venues. Even though the piano has yet to have been delivered, the faculty is already excitedly making plans for recitals and we look forward to taking part in and supporting any future events.
