Please donate: The Lambs Foundation is raising funds to replace two failing pianos. One is a nearly 100 year-old Stroud baby grand, located in our performance space, which has a cracked sound board (and won’t stay tuned). The other is a 60-year old Steinway upright piano – our work horse – and worn out. It’s repair costs come close to the price of a replacement.
We are launching an effort to raise funds to replace both pianos with Steinway Boston pianos (models GP-156 PE and UP-118S PE), for a total cost of $26,000. Steinway & Sons has offered a discount on the purchase … and we love a Steinway! Not only do we have Steinway Artists among our membership (Rosa Antonelli and Donald Pippin), but Charles Steinway was elected a Lamb in 1906.
The Lambs Foundation is staffed solely by hard-working volunteers.
We will be offering some events where the proceeds will go to our piano fund, and will post the event information here. One event shall be a concert by Rosa Antonelli in the new Steinway Hall in Manhattan, Monday October 24th.(READ MORE.) Other events will include a concert by Lamb Shana Farr, a concert by Enid and the Boys, and a performance by the Emmy winning comic Lamb Dave Konig….and a Shepherd’s luncheon: Conversations with Matthew Broderick,
Meanwhile, we are in need of your generous private donations! We have a raised a total of $12,800, and the balance for the purchase was covered by a bequest of the Foundation VP, the late Scott Glascock.
