Chestnut Hill College begins Steinway Master Artist series

Chestnut Hill College became an “All Steinway” school in January of 2011. It means that the faculty and students will only use Steinway & Sons pianos. There are only 135 schools worldwide that hold this status.

CHC discovered in 2010 that the school’s 24 pianos would need to be replaced soon. The school upgraded to Steinways purchasing three grand pianos for performances and 15 Boston upright pianos, which are designed by Steinway.

Earlier this month the college hosted Steinway performance artist Meral Gϋneyman as part of its new Steinway Master Artist series. NewsWorks had a chance to take some video and interview the artist. The concert was Thursday, March 15 in the East Parlor, St. Joseph Hall.
