The date for the welcome home concert for the 1927 Steinway & Sons grand piano currently being restored by the Tiger Foundation is Sunday, September 27, 2015, at 2:00 p.m. in the school auditorium. The concert is free and open to the public and all are welcome.

Plans are to have four performances on the program for the welcome concert. We plan to showcase the variety of music that has been played on the Steinway over the past 88 years, including classical, choral, jazz, and swing.

Details of the concert will be forthcoming on this website.

    I am glad to see that jazz and swing will be included in this concert, which I have already announced on the Facebook page I maintain for the Arkansas Jazz Heritage Foundation (the all-volunteer nonprofit which sponsors and maintains the Arkansas Jazz Hall of Fame, http://www.arjazz.org). Swing Band Reunion (www.swingbandreunion.com) – which contains several members of Central High’s original 1956 swing band – has also announced the concert on its Facebook page. When other details are received, I will post them to the website calendar for Jazz Near You (www.jazznearyou.com), which also issues a free e-newsletter each Thursday. – Alita Mantels, Secretary for Arkansas Jazz Heritage Foundation/Arkansas Jazz Hall of Fame, Arkansas Editor for All About Jazz/Jazz Near You
