Carter and Schene play the Steinways

Department chair Jeffrey Carter looks on as Keyboard Studies director Daniel Schene plays one of the Steinways scheduled for delivery Dec. 22.

The Department of Music is getting a makeover that will yield beautiful notes for years to come.

On Wednesday, Dec. 22, Webster University will join the exclusive club of international All-Steinway schools. Webster’s purchase of 32 Steinway-brand pianos, including seven grand pianos, represents the University’s unwavering commitment to provide the highest quality of educational opportunities for students.

All are invited for the ceremonial delivery at 10:30 a.m. Dec. 22: Two 7′ Steinway B pianos will be delivered to the Recital Hall of the Thompson Music Building, 8282 Big Bend Blvd, followed by a ceremonial cutting of the blue and gold Webster ribbons.

After the pianos are set up, Webster’s director of Keyboard Studies Daniel Schene and a number of enthusiastic students will play the two pianos to select which instrument will stay in the Recital Hall, and which will be moved up the stairs to Professor Schene’s studio.
