Music and war: how Steinway played into WWII
The Victory Vertical Piano Project tells, in words and music, an amazing and little- known story about the pianos built for the military during WWII. Mr. Pedersen will use descriptive vignettes accompanied by piano music in many styles to bring to life a remarkable account of courage, solidarity and the power of music.
Gary Pedersen, Professor of Piano at Eastern Michigan University and immediate past President of the Michigan Music Teachers Association
Formal Meetings open at 9:00 with coffee, refreshments and socializing. Our business meeting follows, beginning about 9:30. Guest presenters start their presentation at 10:00 am.
