Whether you’re a professional musician or simply enjoy "tickling the ivories" from time to time – if you’re in the market for a piano, you may find one at York this week.
York University’s Music Department is supplied with new pianos each year through an extensive on-loan program in conjunction with Y.C. Chau & Sons Pianos Inc. and Young Chang Canada.
Each year, York University renews its stock of pianos on campus. Then, every summer, the stock of pianos is turned over as new instruments are installed and the previous year’s "on-loan" instruments, plus other outstanding pianos, are made available to the public for purchase during this annual event.
A special preview day for York faculty, staff and alumni will be today from 11am to 7pm.
The sale is open to the public on:
- Aug. 6, from 11am to 8pm
- Aug. 7, from 10am to 8pm
- Aug. 8, from 10am to 6pm
- Aug. 9, from 11am to 6pm
Appointments are recommended, but walk-ins are welcome.
More than 100 instruments will be available, including new and used, professionally refurbished and refinished uprights, grands, baby grands and 88-note digital pianos. Brand names include Young Chang, Weber, Mason & Hamlin, Kawai, Yamaha, Steinway, Heintzman, Kurzweil and many others.
Delivery, tuning and warranty services are provided by Y.C. Chau & Sons Pianos Inc., the official service provider for York University’s musical needs.
