Our Goal

Our goal is to raise $150,000 for a Steinway Model D.

Our goal is to replace our current Etherredge Center stage piano with a new 9-foot Steinway concert grand that will compliment this prestigious space. The piano will benefit all students and organizations that will utilize the Etherredge Center. The cost of the 9-foot Steinway D concert grand piano is $150,000.

In addition to the keys, we will also be seeking larger donations to represent other aspects of the piano (Piano Lid, Steinway Logo, Major Chord, etc.) If you are interested in making a larger donation, please contact Judith Goodwin at 803-295-7434  or Emailjudithg@usca.edu

We hope that the community’s continuing generosity will cover the purchase price of the piano. Any funds raised above the purchase price will be directed toward our goal of becoming an All-Steinway School – one of only three in the state of South Carolina, and the only public University in the state with that distinction. All-Steinway Schools demonstrate a commitment to excellence and an unparalleled educational experience by providing students with unrivaled equipment inspiring them to realize the highest level in the professional world. It is found that the classification of All-Steinway Schools not only recruits better music students but better students in all fields and better faculty and staff as well.
