Join us for the Music & Performing Arts Library’s Player Piano Reveal on Saturday, September 22 at 1pm. The event will start with presentations about player pianos in the Music Building Auditorium featuring Catherine Hennessy-Wolter, PhD in Musicology from Illinois in 2016, and Mel Septon, restorer of automatic musical instruments.
A light reception will follow in the Music & Performing Arts Library and attendees will have the opportunity to see MPAL’s recently renovated piano in action. Items relating to players pianos from MPAL’s collections will also be on display.
Special thanks to the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Institutional Advancement and Dean of Libraries and University Librarian, John Wilkin, for providing the support to renovate the piano and build a dedicated new room in the Library.
