Hi JeffBC,

You are welcome to shoot video while the group is on the 6th floor before the tour, during lunch, and of course, for the after-tour recital. We ask that the PianoWorld folks please stow their video cameras while on the manufacturing floors, for the safety of the group.

'Looking forward to seeing you in Haverhill.

Although I have been enjoying this forum for months, I have only recently joined. In fact, this is my first post - ever! I'm sure to join in forum discussions as I am looking for a grand piano for myself and my daughters. I would like to sign up for the Mason & Hamlin tour and have already sent an email with the essential information. I look forward to meeting you all!

It's a wonderful tour. You will all have a great time.

Will miss seeing you Cecil (make sure he plays!) and MH friends.

Maybe I can stop by for lunch or the playground?

Please see these additional piano events planned around the time of the M&H tour.

Even if you can't make the tour, you should try to join us for some/all of these piano events...

Hi Terry, thanks for the warm response! I kinda fell off the face of the forums again after posting my initial message. I notice that you are not listed in the main thread as attending the tour, is that an oversight?

Regarding the tour, and specifically the playing that I expect will happen after, are there any rules or conventions we should be aware of? Like, what happens if somebody has their one best piece that they are really excited to play and somebody else gets up and plays it first because they didn't realize the other person was planning to play it? Will the other person be out of luck or can they play it again anyway? Or what if somebody only knows part of a piece and likes to play just the first page but can't do the rest? Will they be pelted with rotten fruit if they get up there and play half a sonata or the EZ Edition of Rach 3? (Actually, that might be pretty cool to hear.)

Ok, I'm obviously joking around, because I know everyone will be perfectly pleasant and there are all levels of playing among PW members, and more music is always better. But are there any rules like "NO STAIRWAY" for the piano equivalent of Stairway to Heaven? (Wayne's World reference there) And what would that be anyway? I might guess Heart and Soul, but at least Stairway was a great song inherently, even if overplayed.

As a former music store owner, I can tell you that fur elise is the piano equivalent to Stairway to Heaven:-)

That said, I still like both pieces.

There are no rules about what you play, we are always happy to have anyone/everyone play whatever they are comfortable with, even if it's the same piece the person before them played.

The idea is to relax and enjoy the company of people who all share a passion for the piano, and the joy of playing a room full of freshly minted high-end pianos.

If you've never taken a tour of this type before, you will find you have a new found respect and admiration for the work and craftsmenship that goes into making a fine piano.

SteveM...I can atest to the fact that they WON'T pelt you with rotten fruit if you play wrong notes...as I did... the PW members have always been very gracious and there is always a wide display of talent...
The tour is a must see, the M&H Family are the BEST HOSTS. They are the best!!!

No, not an oversight. I attended the first 2 tours; 2004 & 2005. Each year the tour becomes more popular and it's necessary to let others come onboard as much as I would like to be there every year.


Last year Larry Buck hosted a gathering at his piano shop in Lowell after the tour. I found a new challenge for myself in assisting with the food setup for the after tour gathering! We had a great time meeting and enjoying the tour group and another chance to play more pianos was provided in the performance room at Larry's shop. Here is a link to last years pics: Larry Buck\'s Piano Shop Lowell - May 2007

I hope you and your brother will plan to join both events on Monday. Prepare yourselves though, as these gatherings can become so addictive! wink

Don't forget to read May Grand Events Surrounding the M&H Tour .


I'm hoping the advance notice will assist with those who have busy schedules and allow them enough opportunity to prepare for all the events that are scheduled.

put me on the list as an alternate, please. I joined the forum too late to get in this year, but I sure would love to come next year.

Would love to get to this tour. Looks likes it's over-subscribed, but just in case there's an additional one or a vacancy:

Since the tour is oversubscribed I thought I should make a "go/no go" decision as early as possible and it looks like it's "no go". I've had a number of things come up that will make it impossible for me to attend the tour. I'm really disappointed as I was looking forward both to the tour and the events surrounding it. I hope that someone on the wait list enjoys it by proxy.

Greg.... frown I was truly looking forward to meeting you!

Alerting those on stand-by and allowing them the chance to organize their plans is quite commendable on your part.

Hopefully you will be able to consider the '09 tour! It will be here before we know it!! wink

Hi - my husband and I are definitely in. (I sent a message saying maybe, and now I can't send another until there is a reply to the first one - so I just wanted to confirm ASAP.)
We are looking forward to it greatly! How long is the tour?

Welcome to the tour.
It starts at 9:00 a.m., best to get there at least 15 minutes early.

When you go in the front entrance someone will be in the office area. You will sign in, and be brought to the 6th floor where we all gather first.

Tour takes most of the day, we break for lunch (M&H kindly feeds us too).

Usually ends about 3:30 - 4:00, which is when we have the opportunity to play the wonderful freshly minted pianos in the display area of the 6th floor.

Make sure you bring/wear comfortable walking shoes, we do a lot of walking on hard floors.

Although we typically use the stairs, an elevator is available if anyone has trouble with so many stairs. (We all take the elevator from the 1st to the 6th)

And don't forget, there is a party after the tour, at Larry Buck's Shop in Lowell (about 20 minutes from the factory).

REMINDER TO ALL:

Cameras are allowed, EXCEPT ... video cameras (including the one in your cell phone) can ONLY be used when we are in the 6th floor display area.
Still cameras can be used throughout, but please be courteous to the workers, ... don't get in their way, and don't shoot off flashes in their faces.

As usual there are people dropping out at the last minute, opening up slots for the alternates.

If you are interested in joining us for our 5th annual Mason & Hamlin Piano Factory Tour, get yourself on the alternates list a.s.a.p.

This tour was a life changing experience--thank you everyone!

I have 100 pictures to share but I don't have the time to upload them individually. Is there a batch upload option anywhere? I've already optimized all the pics to around 200kb each, I just don't want to have to use this form to do them individually:

http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/fileuploader2.html

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Chris

Chris,

You can email webmaster@pianoworld.com them to me, or tell me where they are located (a folder online?) and I'll grab them and post them to the same directory as the uploader files, then you can just patch in whatever pictures you want.

Thanks for remembering we prefer to host them on our server so they don't disappear on us.

Best,

Frank B.
