Jordan-Matthews Arts Foundation donates baby grand piano for students at Jordan-Matthews

The idea took root two years ago when the All County Chorus performed at Jordan-Matthews. It was an evening of glorious choral music, performed beautifully by the community’s best vocalists. But there was only one wrong note: the piano. “When we wheeled out the old upright from the chorus room, it looked really sad, and its sound didn’t come close to matching the quality of our students’ performance,” said chorus teacher Matt Fry. “That’s when we started wondering if there was any way we could buy a new piano.” So last fall, JMArts, the Jordan-Matthews Arts Foundation, took up the cause and began a fundraising drive to purchase a used baby grand.
