Through April 2018, the Museum of Making Music presents “Unseen Artists: Sights & Insights from the Piano Technicians Guild.”
At the entrance to the Museum, you’ll learn about the relatively unknown role of the piano technician, discover the vintage and modern tools of their trade, and explore work that it takes to keep all types of pianos in top shape. You’ll also see three historic pianos from the 18th and 19th centuries on loan from the Piano Technicians Guild Foundation’s Jack Wyatt Museum in Kansas City, KS.
One of the pianos on display is the 1841 Chickering piano that belonged to the famous actress Laura Keene, and was present in Ford’s Theater the night Lincoln was assassinated. This is one of the earliest upright pianos of modern design made.
