Event description

Description

Emily Hou, piano

Suggested donation- $10-20

Steinway Piano Gallery Ottawa is pleased to provide our city with a wonderful 2019 concert series, performed by local Ottawa artists. The series will run January through June on the last Saturday of each month.

One of the many ways that Steinway supports its community is by raising money in support of the Children's Aid Foundation of Ottawa. The purpose is to provide piano lessons for children in foster care who otherwise wouldn't get to experience the magic of creating music.

Join us the last Saturday of every month to enjoy concerts put on by friends of Steinway Ottawa. These generous and talented souls have agreed to play for us in order to help fundraise for this cause. There is no fee for these concerts, but we do ask for a voluntary donation of $10-20 at the door.

June 15- Emily Hou
