Ottawa Pianos Prepares For the Kiwanis Music Festival

The month of April brings many new things to this piano store.  The much anticipated spring weather should be here, but it is not. Our technicians navigate through one last snow storm, we hope, to prepare the grand pianos for delivery to the largest music festival in the nation's capital.
Ottawa's Kiwanis Music Festival has been there since 1945 for all types of performers of all ages and degrees of education and ability to perform and be adjudicated. Many outstanding musicians have been Kiwanis Music Festival's award recipients in the past: soprano Maria Pelligrini, pianist Angela Hewitt, and of course our very own Dick Papalia who won First Place in the Open Class Accordion Category in 1958 and now the official supplier of pianos for the festival!
As I write this blog I have the beautifully sublime yet passionate  Rachmaninoff's prelude in G playing in the background by one of our students preparing for the festival. The anticipation is building! We are very proud to be part of this incredible process in a student's musical development and we wish all the students the very best!
