The Art of

the Piano


The Boston Conservatory

As a central instrument to all of the disciplines of the Boston Conservatory, we honored the piano at the 2013 fundraising gala for the Boston Conservatory.


The instrument featured heavily in all of the student performances throughout the night, including a dueling piano duet, an opera performance of a scene from La Bohème, and an original, one-night-only choreographed dance performance. 


The event was held in the breathtaking State Room where views of the Boston skyline and the harbor acted as the backdrop for all the performances throughout the night. 

To keep with the Piano theme throughout the night, we invited Piano as Art to showcase their work during the cocktail hour. Their art pieces are made by using discarded piano parts and recycling them into unique sculptures. We further infused the theme into the centerpieces which were made from recycled cones of sheet music from the Conservatory libraries discarded collection. 

“In my life I have attended many such events and have to say you managed to pull off a certain atmosphere – comfortable yet dressy, serious yet lighthearted, purposeful but fun – that other organizers could only dream of. Well Done!” 
- Shauna Holiman, Piano as Art artist

“All of our guests had a most enjoyable time and all the other people we talked to really enjoyed the change of format. You did a great job once again.”  
- Gregory Bulger, Trustee and Gala Co-Chair
