Heintzman Salon Grand Piano
Murray Adaskin’s 1960 Heintzman Salon Grand Piano was manufactured at the very apogee of Canada’s finest piano maker and has a gorgeous, warm sound. It has been played by Sir Ernest MacMillan, Benjamin Britten, Mario Bernardi, and John Newmark, and holds a unique place in BC’s musical history. The piano was purchased in 2006 with the help of the BC Registered Teacher’s Association, and was lovingly rebuilt and is regularly maintained by Scott Harker. It comes with a matching wooden bench or a Frederick Adjustable Piano Chair.
