Celebrating Our All-Steinway Status

International Steinway pianist Jeffrey Biegel, a musician Moravian College’s Sean O’Boyle called “the finest pianist of his generation,” was a fitting selection to perform at the inaugural Betty Aierstock Moore Memorial Concert Jan. 24 in honor of the College’s attainment of “All-Steinway School” status.

The concert, presented in partnership with Jacobs Music, Philadelphia, formally celebrated Moravian with the presentation of an All-Steinway School plaque. In July 2013, Moravian received a gift from the late Betty Louise Aierstock Moore ’45 that secured the acquisition of an additional 10 Steinway & Sons pianos, achieving the noteworthy designation.
