Welcome, Sapphire!

Sapphire. I actually played a couple of chords on her keys.

I love a piano
I love the piano
I love to hear somebody play
Upon a piano
A grand piano
It simply carries me away
I know a fine way
To treat a Steinway
I love to run my fingers
O'er the keys,
The ivories,
And with the pedal
I love to meddle
When Padarewski comes this way
I'm so delighted
If I'm invited
To hear the long-haired genius play
 So you can keep your fiddle and your bow
Give me a p-i-a-n-o, oh, oh
I love to stop right
Beside an upright
Or a high-toned baby grand!

 Welcome Sapphire, UCLA's Center for the Art of Performance's new grand piano!

A wonderful welcoming event with great musical performances in a spectacular setting.

Pretty piano...and you can't tune a fish.

Oh my, Sapphire is beautiful. When we were piano shopping some years ago Ernest got to play a Steinway at a store in Santa Monica. Too rich for our budget but how beautiful it sounded.
