UWF Department of Music presents the 11th Annual All-Steinway School Celebration

University of West Florida | news@uwf.edu

The UWF Department of Music will present its 11th Annual All-Steinway School Celebration on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m. The concert will be held in the Music Hall at the Center for Fine and Performing Arts, Building 82.

In 2007, by the generous gift of Helen Wentworth, the UWF Department of Music became an “All-Steinway School.” At that time, UWF was only the second university having this distinction in the State of Florida. In honor of Helen and Warren Wentworth, the department initiated an Annual Steinway Piano Showcase and the celebration has become a popular annual event in the community.

For this year’s celebration, the talented pianists will perform an All-Chopin program, including some of the Nocturnes, Polonaises, Waltzes, Ballades, a movement of the First Sonata, the Fantasie Impromptu and three Scherzos.

Since becoming an All-Steinway School, many of the piano students have moved on to continue their studies at top graduate music programs, such as the Cleveland Institute of Music, Florida State University, Belmont University, Louisiana State University, University of Southern Mississippi, University of Tennessee, Michigan State University, Montclair University and others.

The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. For more information or to reserve tickets, please contact the CFPA Box Office at 850.857.6285.
