A Performance Piano for The Musical Offering

Three years ago, the MO created a new performance space to highlight our talented students and faculty. Audiences and performers love the acoustics and intimacy of the Madison Room and have driven the success of multiple concert series.  But, like any performance space, the musical culture revolves around the quality of the piano, and we need an upgrade!

We're asking you, our MO families and supporters, to get us to the finish line.
