Need a piano? Buy one from University of Michigan music school’s inventory

ANN ARBOR, MI – The pianos owned by the University of Michigan have been played over the years by Grammy Award winners, international concert pianists and more.

Interested in owning one?

Well, UM’s School of Music, Theater and Dance is putting some of its current inventory on sale so it can buy replacements.

Grand pianos, baby grands, studios, electronic consoles and more are on sale, first for the campus community and then the public, officials said.

Alumni, faculty and staff, students and guests of the university have first access to purchase the pianos “at a reduced price” prior to them being made available for public purchase. Financing and delivery is available.

Private appointments prior to the public sale are available from Thursday to Saturday, Aug. 11-13. Schedule an appointment by calling 734-764-6117.

The public sale is from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 14, in the Walgreen Drama Center, 1226 Murfin Ave. on North Campus in Ann Arbor.

The pianos have either been leased to UM, are being retired by the music department or are part of an allocation of “slightly used” Steinway, Boston and Essex pianos. There are also used digital pianos available for purchase at a reduced price.

The School of Music, Theater and Dance is committed to providing its students updated instruments, officials said, and funds from the sale will go toward purchasing new pianos for classrooms, studios and practice rooms.

The sale is conducted by Steinway Piano’s Institutional Division.
