Young pianists to play on Steinways at ChildAid concert
Young pianists performing in this year's ChildAid charity concert will get to play on three Steinway grand pianos, including one that costs $298,000.
Concert organisers The Business Times and The Straits Times announced a tie-up with Steinway Gallery on Friday that sees the latter loaning two Steinway Model B pianos for three years - from this year to 2014.
It will also provide a $298,000 Steinway concert grand piano Model D at a highly subsidised rate for this year's concert.
Ms Celine Goh, general manager of Steinway Gallery, said she picked the Model D from six units "for its evenness, pristine sound quality and a very distinctive maturity in tone".
