With the holiday season quickly approaching, the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre for the Arts has several items on its wish list, but topping the list is an upright piano.
In anticipation of the season of giving, the venue is appealing to the community in hopes a generous donor will step forward to either donate a piano or make a significant contribution towards its purchase.
As the foundational tool for performances and musical study, the piano will be used in concerts, recitals, teaching and practice.
According to Wake Forest Renaissance Centre Manager Cathy Gouge, a new upright piano costs upwards of $ 4,000. Considering the cost, Gouge says the center is willing to accept a used piano that’s in good or excellent shape or even house one for an owner who doesn’t wish to sell it but no longer has room for it.
Anyone interested in donating an upright piano or contributing towards its purchase is urged to contact Gouge at 919-435-9567 or [email protected].
All contributions are tax-deductible. Any donation made on or by midnight Dec. 31, 2015, will qualify as a deduction for 2015.
