Eastern Michigan University Strengthens All Steinway School Campaign
Eastern Michigan University (Ypsilanti) held a gala event for 150 alums at Steinway Hall to promote their All Steinway School campaign. To a cheering crowd, President Susan Martin clearly stated that it was EMU’s intention to become the first All Steinway University in the state of Michigan. Dr. Garik Pederson performed a recital and was joined by Dr. Joel Schoenhals for the final two-piano selection. Both are Steinway artists. The school is trying to raise $2.5 million for the purchase of new Steinways.
