FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
PELLISSIPPI STATE COMMUNITY COLLEGE REACHES ITS GOAL TO BECOME AN ALL-STEINWAY SCHOOL
Knoxville, TN – May 3, 2011 – On April 27, 2011, President Dr. Allen Edwards, along with Music Program Coordinator Dr. Bill Brewer and Steinway representative Brandon Herrenbruck made the historic announcement that Pellissippi State Community College had reached its goal of becoming an All-Steinway School – Tennessee’s first community college to earn this distinction.
“As an All-Steinway School, we will build prestige, enhance student and faculty recruitment, and create a legacy of excellence in music education for future generations,” said Music Program Coordinator, Dr. Bill Brewer.
The new pianos arrive on Thursday, May 5 at 1:00pm following a yearlong campaign. Beginning in 2010, the Pellissippi State Foundation sought to elevate the Music program at Pellissippi State Community College to world-class status by raising $600,000 for the placement of 13 Steinway pianos in studios, practice rooms and performance venues.
All-Steinway Schools demonstrate a commitment to excellence by providing their students and faculties with the best equipment possible for the study of music. That is why the only pianos owned by Pellissippi State Community College – from the practice room to the recital hall – are designed by Steinway & Sons.
Pellissippi State is committed to providing the best quality education for its students - which starts with enabling students to practice and perform on the world’s finest pianos. Incomparable sound and performance make Steinway the piano of choice for schools committed to providing the very best for their students. The enduring quality of Steinway pianos underscores the wisdom of the College’s investment. Students will choose to invest their talents at Pellissippi State Community College, because this school has invested in them.
