When: Friday, September 17, 4-6 PM
Where: Perkins Library, Biddle Rare Book Room
Richard Ruggero, owner and president of Ruggero Piano, will show us how pianos are made, and how a qualified technician can significantly change the character of a piano with the art of "voicing"--the manipulation of hammer felts to achieve a desired tone. He will also field piano-related questions from attendees. A short performance by Randy Love will be included before and after voicing to demonstrate the difference in tone that can be achieved.
