Our venue needs a new heart!
ASU Kerr’s current grand piano, to put it in automotive terms, is “totaled.” The 1983 Baldwin has a dangerously cracked harp, putting several tons of tension at risk. Various piano tuners and experts have informed us that it is beyond repair; the cost of a repair would exceed the value of the piano, so we find ourselves needing to retire the piano and start anew. As with most challenges, this is an opportunity for growth! Our goal is for ASU Kerr to purchase a pre-owned Steinway. This will reinvigorate the sound and look of our beloved studio while allowing the venue to book Steinway artists, something we had not been able to easily do with a Baldwin. The piano will further help us evolve into the performing arts facility of our staff’s and patrons’ dreams.
Your contribution will ensure that our communities will be able to connect with world-class musicians and music at ASU Kerr in the future with a new-to-us, gently pre-loved piano at the center of the show. You will be helping ensure that ASU Kerr remains a home for the arts with the tools to succeed. There is no gift that would be considered too small. If you are unable to donate, consider sharing this campaign with other arts lovers. Together we can do this!
