PianoForte Foundation Executive Director Thomas Zoells announces that the PianoForte Foundation will move operations from the current location in the Fine Arts Building to a redeveloped industrial building at 1335 S. Michigan in Chicago's South Loop near the city’s historic Motor Row. It will re-open as PianoForte Studios – a New Center for the Piano - in October 2013. Grand Opening celebrations will include a mid-month ribbon cutting and a free day of music in the new space on Saturday, October 26.
The PianoForte Foundation, which currently occupies various spaces throughout the Fine Arts Building, will move to a new, custom-designed 11,000 square-foot building at 1335 S. Michigan Avenue. The light-filled, loft-style, three-story PianoForte Studios building will include a new 100-seat performance venue with state of the art audio and video recording capabilities; piano equipped, sound-proof practice rooms; flexible rental space for outside groups and ensembles and the headquarters of the PianoForte Foundation. PianoForte’s retail operations will also move to the new location with a first-floor showroom.Congrats to them on the opening and welcome to the Sloop - glad to have you here!
