Thanks to very generous donations from the several University of Nebraska at Omaha alumni and area arts benefactors, the School of Music is the home to a new Steinway B piano.
A Steinway B piano is as sweet as they come in the world of performing arts. Dr. Washington Garcia, director of the UNO School of Music, said the university and city of Omaha are very fortunate to now have a musical instrument of this quality.
“The community of Omaha is so unique,” he said. “The people feel so strongly about taking care of each other.”
After a few trips to the Steinway factory in New York, Garcia found the perfect match to provide students, faculty and future guest performers a world-class musical experience for years to come.
