Hello Neighbors,

Next Saturday, November 19th at 6:00 pm, PianoWorks will be hosting a reception for Indrek Laul of Estonia Piano Company. It's a social event with performances from some of our Estonia piano customers as well as Dr. Laul.

It has been over 5 years since he last visited, so this is a great opportunity to meet one of the most gracious leaders in our industry. It will also be Atlanta's debut for the new Estonia model 225. I hope to put faces to some of the many screen names smile

The event is free, but please email or message me to RSVP. There are additional details via the PianoWorks website.

That sounds great, Sam!

I wish it was where I could come. I would love to meet Dr. Laul and hear him play the piano.

I was actually invited to the Steinway Piano Galleries in Alphareta a while back to see the famous Horowitz Steinway piano there on display. I wish I could have attended that too.

I wish I was able to get out more... :-)

I wish it was a little closer, I'd be happy to attend.

As you said, Indrek is a very gracious (and very talented) person.

Have fun!

Hi Sam,

I hope that soon after you will put some nice pictures and a video recording of the new 225 on your website.

As far as I know you would then be the first dealer having 'in-showroom' picture/video shots on your website of the new 225.

At least I could then also enjoy some of the evening as you do not expect me to come over for the day do you? smile

schwammerl.

Thanks All. I've been looking forward to planning this event and having him back for a while. I may get lucky and end up with a nice recording.

maybe it's too late to mention to Indrek that he should stop by KC on the the way home. I'd be glad to pick him up at the airport for free.

I'd love to see a pic of the 225. You are so lucky.

Indrek spending time with one of our evening's fellow performers (and Estonia owner).

More appreciative Estonia owners.

Piano teacher and appreciative Estonia owner of 6 years.

One of our younger performers performing the 3rd movement of Beethoven's Waldstein Sonata (you guessed it, Estonia owner).

Some 4-hand piano from Dvořák.

The tight linkage from maker to dealer to owner is really neat.

Thank you Sam.

Thanks Sam, looks like everyone had a fun time.
Indrek is a class act and a very talented yet humble man.

I'm pleased to count him as a friend.

A really good example of how dealers can help making a brand more recognized by the broader public.

Wished more dealers could follow this example for the Estonia Piano in Europe.

Congrtaulations Sam with this successful initiative!

Yes, it is. It was ready for the concert, but in the end, we didn't have any duets in the program.
