Frederick's Historical Piano Collection May Lose Home!
This is a Piano Forums News Alert - Oct. 16, 2006
Many of you are familiar with the Frederick's Historical Piano Collection, having visited their wonderful
collection Located at the HISTORICAL PIANO STUDY CENTER ASHBURNHAM, MASSACHUSETTS for a tour and/or concert.
According to Pat Frederick, a town selectman is considering repossessing the building that currently houses the Frederick’s piano collection.
If you've ever moved even one piano, you can imagine the nightmare it would be to move about
20 grand pianos! Not to mention these pianos are all over 100 years old.
If you've met the Fredericks, you would know that finding, restoring, and making these incredible historical
instruments available to the public is a labor of love. You would also know the Frederick's are wonderful
people, who truly enjoy sharing their rare collection with all of us.
As a member of the Piano World community, we presume you like (or love?) the piano.
We are asking you now to do what you can to help save this significant and important collection.
Something as simple as mailing (or emailing) the town telling them why you think it's important
to keep the collection together, and keep it where it is, may be all it takes to make a difference.
Piano Business Professionals If you are a professional in the piano business, you should be advertising on Piano World.
