Hi Rami,

I wish I lived in the area to attend.

Cathy Harl's store is a great place to hold a recital! Are you playing on a C Bech concert grand or one of the other beauties there?

Hey Lilylady,
Yes, it is a wonderful piano store.
How do you know the store if you are not from there?
I don't know yet what piano I'll play.
Possibly one of the very big Bechsteins, or one of the new Boesies...
Where do you live?
I also have a concert in Utica NY in June.
Best wishes,
Rami

Rami,

Last year I went on trips to try and find a top upright German piano. That included the DC area. Cathy graciously set me up in a hotel, picked me up at the airport, took me to Pianocraft for a day playing the Steingraeber there, then we went out on the town that evening. She gave me her keys for an early morning 'check out the candy store' the next day! Pics here:

I don't remember Bosie's there though but loved the C Bech Concert Grands!

I'm from north of Boston, and ended up with a Mason Hamlin AA !!!

Hey Lilylady (Roberta, I suppose...),
What a wonderful piano shopping experience.
I also visited PianoCraft, an amazing place and also played the Steingraeber.
Nice pictures of the store.
You don't remember Bosie's there, because she didn't have them, but she got them now.
I go often to Boston, we must meet...
Regards,
Rami
