The performing and fine arts department has announced that many fine pianos loaned to the UP music program are now available for purchase. The selection includes baby grands, music room grands, uprights, hybrids, and performance quality digital pianos. The music program has a special arrangement with Kawai America Corporation and Portland Piano Company that directly benefits our talented music students by providing quality new pianos in practice and performance spaces. These instruments are now being offered to the public at greatly reduced prices. All University of Portland loaned pianos will be first offered to faculty, staff, alumni, students, and friends at reduced prices by appointment Thursday through Saturday, October 8–10, before being sold to the general public on Sunday October 11. Please call (503) 775-2620 to reserve your preview appointment today.
These pianos have been professionally maintained and most include the original ten-year manufacturer’s warranty. Local arrangements have also been made for financing, professional delivery, and warranty coverage through Kawai America Corporation.
There are two ways to select an instrument. You are invited to take advantage of a limited number of preview appointments prior to the public sale by calling (503) 775-2620. During your preview appointment you can view, inspect, and immediately purchase your piano. This will guarantee best selection as pianos are sold first come first served. A general public sale will be held on Sunday, October 11, from noon to 5 p.m., at Portland Piano Company, 8700 NE Columbia Blvd., Portland, OR. 97220.
The acquisition and maintenance of a quality piano fleet is one of the most crucial and expensive components of our accredited music program. Cooperative programs such as this piano loan program add significant value to the needs of our students. If you’ve ever wanted to own an exceptional piano, please consider taking advantage of this opportunity, which directly benefits our students, our music program and an important local and supportive business partner.
