Interested in purchasing an instrument?
A large selection of grands, baby grands, digital player grands, vertical (upright) pianos, digital pianos, and orchestra instruments, will be available at The Conservatory of Music at Capital University on Saturday May 13th 2:00pm-5:00pm. Address: Main Campus Conservatory of Music Complex, 2260 East Mount Street, Columbus, OH 43209.

This event will feature instruments from such famous makers as Yamaha, Disklavier, Kawai, Seiler, Stravari Fine Violins, and many others. Most instruments are less than a year old, include a new factory warranty, are tuned, and ready to go. Delivery and special no-interest financing is available on site. 

Your purchase is considered tax-deductible as a charitable contribution to the Rockley Family Foundation, recognized by the I.R.S. as a 501(c)(3) organization. The Rockley Family Foundation donated these instruments for use by Capital University students, and are then sold after the academic year to perpetuate this valuable program.
