For four years now, I have witnessed the piano in the first floor entrance foyer of the Arts Building go from poor to better condition and then back again. After tuning, it sounds reasonable at best, and would not attract most music students to sit down and share their talents with us. I enjoy doing this, but have to be very careful to avoid clunker notes which can quickly spoil the moment.
The piano seems to be in poor condition and may not be worth spending thousands on to make improvements. I wonder if a replacement could be found which sounds better and can be safely stored overnight and weekends so it is not subject to vandalism. Who knows, maybe the music students will stop by occasionally. They’re way better than me.
