WHEN TWO PIANO MUSIC LOVERS are so enamored with great piano playing, they want to share their enthusiasm with others. It happens that Alvin H. Williams III, who has coordinated piano competitions himself, and Lance G. Hill, a long-time concert piano technician and classical music radio broadcaster, decided to do something that is unprecedented in the Triple-Cities area until now: provide a venue and superb concert grand piano especially for young artists who have chosen to have a career in piano performance.
It is precisely these young artists who are the classical pianists of the future. In that end, we need to have the support of music lovers everywhere to help us accomplish this task. Not only is financial support necessary, but the support of your ears, to hear these marvelous young pianists, which is equally important. The young pianists we choose will come from all over the United States, Canada, and Europe.
Please consider supporting these efforts as much as possible and let us all contribute the highest level of artistic genius to the generation that follows. In the next few months we will embark on our campaign for our upcoming series. It is our fervent hope that you will continue to support us and music.
