Steinway Restoration

piano Our 1925 model O Steinway Grand Piano is in much need of restoration.

This beautiful instrument was bequeathed  to the Bradford Congregational Church by its beloved former organist and choir director and life-long Bradford resident Katrina Munn.

This Steinway is one of the very few in the United States that was made in Hamburg, Germany. Pianos made in Germany are considered by many to be superior in sound, character and touch. Our goal is to invest the necessary restoration efforts in order to bring the piano back to its melodic beauty so that musicians near and far can come to Bradford to experience its quality and perform for the community.

piano1On June 8 (2019), the piano left the sanctuary for its journey to Lindeblad Piano Restoration in Pine Brook, NJ where the 4th generation family owned shop has been providing world class restoration of Steinway pianos since 1920. There it will undergo an  historically accurate restoration and then will be returned to the sanctuary.

Since 1950 “Miss Munn” taught and adjudicated hundreds of local children and adults on this piano and our community will enjoy the music from it for many years to come. Her desire to share her love of music through teaching, lives on through our Steinway.
