In December 2016, three new Steinway pianos were delivered to Gilmour Academy’s Lower School, beginning the process of Gilmour becoming a Steinway Select K-12 School. This unique distinction means that every single piano on campus will soon be replaced with a new Steinway & Sons grand piano. Gilmour Academy is the FIRST private K – 12 school in the Midwest and is only the EIGHTH school in the ENTIRE COUNTRY that has made this commitment to date. In June of 2017, two more Steinways were delivered to campus: a Steinway grand piano for the Chapel, and a Steinway Spirio grand piano to Tudor House. The purchase of these beautiful instruments were all made possible through scheduled donations from Matthew P. Figgie ’84, Figgie Capital and The Figgie Foundation.
The Steinway Select K – 12 designation is exceedingly prestigious and is only bestowed upon qualifying institutions that consist of kindergarten through 12th grade. It is an extension of the All Steinway School honors that Steinway & Sons grants to the world’s best colleges, universities, conservatories and schools of music.
