The College of Southern Maryland, in partnership with the Kawai Corporation, is hosting a public piano sale, noon to 5 p.m., March 17 at the La Plata Campus in the Center for Business and Industry (BI) Building. Patrons can also schedule an appointment with Kawai representatives March 14-16 that will allow them to purchase a piano with priority selection and special pricing.
Every year, CSM receives an annual loan of new Kawai pianos for its education, practice and performance needs. The pianos are provided in conjunction with Kawai America’s Institutional Loan Program, according to CSM Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Education Chair Dr. Stephen Johnson. To support the loan program, these and other fine pianos are periodically offered for sale and Kawai replaces them with new ones. All pianos are sold at institutional prices, not normally available in stores.
“This is an exceptional opportunity for someone to purchase a quality piano and help support the College of Southern Maryland’s Music Program,” said Johnson. “We are fortunate to have this piano loan program in place and are pleased this program benefits the public as well.”
In addition to the pianos on loan, grand pianos, upright pianos, hybrid pianos, digital pianos and player pianos will be sold at significant discounts from their regular prices. Many of the loaned pianos are less than 1 year old and have been carefully maintained. All of the new and loaned pianos come with full factory warranties and technical support services. Delivery and financing will be offered at the sale.
Private showings can be arranged through Kawai at 240-523-6211.
