Have you ever wanted to see how a Steinway & Sons piano is made? Here is your chance! On October 11, 2016, two lucky raffle winners (ages 16 or older) will accompany Dr. Tim Smith (UAA) and our President Nancy Harbour to New York City for a whirlwind tour of the Steinway Factory. The Alaska Center for the Performing Arts is in the middle of our 88 Keys fundraising campaign to buy a new 9-foot Model D Steinway. In addition to the warm fuzzy feeling you get for helping bring a world-class piano home to Anchorage, donors to the 88 Keys campaign get a raffle ticket for a chance to win TWO (2) Round Trip Tickets to New York, two nights at the Courtyard Marriott in La Guardia, and a tour of the ONE and only Steinway Factory in Astoria, NY. There are only 30 keys left! To claim your key, call Anne Garrett, our Director of Development & Marketing at (907) 263-2923 or email her at email@example.com ASAP!
