Bring the Baldwin Home
A Performance Piano for The Musical Offering 

Thank you so much to everyone that has contributed to our Indeigogo campaign! We have raised most, but not all, of what we had set as a goal. We'll be continuing to raise money for that last little bit that we need.

We only need about $500 more to bring the Baldwin home and support excellent programs like the Chamber Classics concert and the Masterclass by the Boogie Woogie Kid, Matthew Ball (that you can see to the right in our "Events" column).

Please visit our "Support Us" page to donate.
