June Collngtonian Includes Article and Photo on Our New Steinway Grand

The June issue of the Collingtonian is now out and available digitally here for sharing with family and friends.

It includes a lovely article on our new Steinway Grand.  All reports are that the sound is magnificent.  Here is the Collingtonian article:

In life, resident Constance (Connie) Grisard was known for her love of music, at Collington and throughout the region. A Collingtonian article noted that she was “concerned about the welfare of our aging Steinway grand” piano.

Now, in death, she has confronted that issue. A $50,000 gift from the Constance H. Grisard Trust, supplemented by a $3,120 grant from the Collington Foundation, has given Collington a new Steinway grand, which has been installed in the Auditorium

An inaugural concert May 29 featured pianist Frederick Moyer .  .  .  . A series of dedicatory recitals is planned for the fall. Connie Grisard, who died in December 2014, surely would applaud.
