Yesterday we received a lovely 1924 Kranich & Bach baby grand piano that will now be available for future music events at Norton Buffalo Hall.
The donation was made by local entrepreneur Clay Reid and his wife Andrea.
Clay's latest project is Plugged In & Turned On In Paradise (PITOIP), a new music TV series that features an array of fascinating, road-tested musicians. One of those is Halie Loren, a top jazz vocalist who will perform for us on February 4th, and the PITOIP crew will be there to film the event. Halie is bringing her trio and asked for a real piano to play, which inspired Clay and Andrea's gift.
On behalf of Paradise Community Guilds, I wish to thank the Reid's for their generosity. I can't wait to hear our new baby sing!
