Hi Piano Gang,

I'm visiting a friend in Peoria, IL and I read this article this morning. What a great idea to do a piano tour as a fundraiser. We have all been on house tours for fundraisers, but, this is indeed clever.


Thought you might all enjoy it.

(Yes, I'm also posting it in the Teacher's Forum.)

It IS a cool idea. Kind of a piano tasting with lots of driving in between. That part doesn't appeal to me, but at least the aural palette would be clear by the time you sit down at the next piano. wink

Although I still like the Cape Cod 4 piano 4 house tour over two days.

It's coming up in a little over two weeks, and it's free and includes great food and drink. Now if we had just thought of tieing it to a fund raiser :-)
