Due to the vision of generous donors and FSU leadership, we were able to purchase two new Steinway Model D concert grand pianos—one for Ruby Diamond Concert Hall and one for Opperman Music Hall. On Sunday, January 21, 2018, during the annual Afternoon of Musical Delight recital for members of the University Musical Associates, the College of Music unveiled its recently purchased Steinway Model D concert grand piano, an artistic and musical treasure that will grace the stage of Ruby Diamond Concert Hall for years to come.
Summers at the College of Music—while remaining busy with classes, the summer music camps, and the summer MME program nevertheless—provide an ideal time for completion of select renovation projects. During late July-early August 2017 and the summer of 2018, Opperman Music Hall received some much needed attention.
