Anyone familiar with the UNICEF Steinway Peace Piano? It's coming to Boston on Sept. 18 - concert at 7pm in the Mary Baker Eddy Library. I'm toying with the idea of going down. Any Mass. PW members interested? If so, I can make reservations with the card I received.

Yoko Hagino, Roxana Bajdechi, Katia Kravits, Geroge Li, Vladimir Kulenovic, Maja Termiszewska and the Cahmber orchestra of Boston are performing.

Does the card you received say anything about a "suggested minimum donation" ? ;\)

Dang! I have a wedding to go to that weekend. If perchance I skip the wedding (it's a possibility), I might try to make it.

This sounds like fun. I am willing. How many will they allow?

Bernard, if you skip the wedding, your room is always ready and waiting!

Great location and I , for one, would love to go a bit early to see the Mapparium

That is one ugly piano!! What were they thinking??

Would love to have joined you but am on the other side of the pond till October.

BeeLady, the Mapparium is definitely worth going to (I lived just down the street from there!). Because of its shape and the fact that it is all glass the acoustics inside are extremely disoncerting. You keep turning around to see who is whispering in your ear and no one is there, eventually you realize it is the person across the room talking to someone else.

New England Conservatory is just a block a away from there on Huntington Ave.

Looks oddly militaristic for a 'peace' piano...


He is so solemn, detached and uninvolved he makes Mr. Spock look like Hunter S. Thompson at closing time.'

Ax, it does cost. I should have mentioned. It's not even suggested donation, it's a flat $40 per head (tax deductible). It's a fundraiser for UNICEF.

Anybody still interested. I probably won't come down if no one is, but if so, I'd make the trek. It's a good cause and I love the Mapparium, too, Beelady.

The piano might not be the prettiest in the world, but it does oddly enough evoke images of other UNICEF art work for me.
