The Fiedler Piano House in Graz has initiated the program ‘Mit Piano durch die Pause’ this year, where schools could ‘borrow’ a (brand new!) Kawai piano to have in an open space of the school building to promote live music performances. We have been enjoying our piano since October, and have been treated to some amazing performances during the school breaks. We raised 300 euro at our concert, which will be used towards purchasing a new piano for the ACE area, where many lower school music classes take place.
