Darton Announces All-Steinway
Darton State College Foundation and Claire Fox Hillard, director of performing arts, has announced an All-Steinway Piano Initiative, a $1million fund-raising program that aims to provide the music department with 21 Steinway pianos for practice and performance. The initiative will give students and faculty the best equipment possible and demonstrates the college’s continued commitment to excellence. In order to be classified as an All-Steinway School, 95 percent of the college’s piano inventory must be Steinway & Sons.
