This year’s Festival will again resound with the incredible Blüthner piano, “the piano with the golden tone.” Jim Reeder of Reeder Pianos will drive the instrument from Michigan. Besides volunteering his time, Mr. Reeder volunteers the piano—the Festival covers only the costs of transportation. Thank you, Reeder Pianos!
