Dear Friends:

I am pleased to notify you that many fine pianos similar to those loaned to the Department of Music at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) are now available for purchase. The selection includes baby grands, music room grands, uprights and studios.

Our music department has a special arrangement that directly benefits our talented music students and faculty. This agreement, made with Kawai America Corporation, provides SIUE with quality new pianos. Similar instruments are now being offered to the public at greatly reduced prices.

All pianos will first be offered to recipients of this letter, alumni and friends, at reduced prices by appointment before being sold to the general public on Sunday, November 12th. These pianos have been professionally maintained and most include the original ten-year manufacturer’s warranty.


By Appointment Only: Thursday through Saturday, November 9th - 11th You may arrange an appointment by calling (314) 219-4166. This letter allows you to view, inspect and immediately purchase your piano.

General Public Day: You can attend the general public piano sale on Sunday, November 12th from noon to 5 p.m.

Location: Due to the size of the sale, the pianos are arranged at The Meadows Shopping Center, Kawai Piano Gallery, 21 Meadow Circle Drive, Suite 312, Lake St. Louis Mo 63367.

We are privileged to have this arrangement and would be pleased if this program were of direct benefit to you as well.
