Going for baroque: Brian Henkelmann tests the Music Department’s new Steinway Model L grand piano with a bit of Bach.

This summer, the Music Department used its $25,000 gift from the Presser Foundation, matched by $24,860 from the piano fund of the Music Alliance support group, to buy two Steinways: a Model L grand (5 feet 10½ inches long) and a professional-model studio upright.

When the new instruments arrived in August, they got a once-over from by Brian Henkelmann ’78, ’83, an artist-lecturer in piano, organ, and sacred music.

The Music Alliance has about $5,000 left in its piano fund: “a good start on the next keyboard,” says Jim Barnes, chair of the department.
