Rare Pianos Loaned To School Of Mines
RAPID CITY, SD -

The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology's music department is getting the use of some rare Steinway pianos and a harpsichord.

Gene McPherson, a 1968 electrical engineering graduate, has provided the department with an indefinite loan of two Steinway grand pianos. One is a mahogany M-model Steinway. The other is a rare Steinway square grand piano that was manufactured in 1859 of fine black walnut.

Director of Music Activities James Feiszli, and his wife, Michelle, have placed their Steinway upright piano and a modern harpsichord in the music center for use by the program.

School officials say the addition of the four keyboard instruments greatly enhances the department's learning and performance opportunities.
