In 2009, they closed down the high school I was teaching at, which opened in 1906 and had collected a lot of stuff over the years.
One of the things that was (almost) left behind, running the risk of lingering in the dust of a building that has been empty for two and a half years now, was a Steinway Grand Piano, which was in need of some serious restoration.
The principal at the school I just transferred to, who was also the principal at the high school, brought it up to her new school and got the faculty, staff and community involved in a fundraiser to restore the Steinway.
Because, regardless of how substantial and solid it looks, the music teacher told us that it would need to be re-tuned every time it was moved. It needs it’s own place, where it can be ready to be played at any time.
