Piano Sale

Thursday, August 24, 2017 Thurs./Fri./Sat.- by appointment only; Sunday 12:00 - 5:00 PM
Location: Pittsburgh Opera Headquarters

Pianos & Digital Pianos Available for Public Purchase

Thursday, Friday, Saturday, & Sunday, August 24th - 27th

Every year, Pittsburgh Opera receives an annual loan of new Kawai pianos for our rehearsal, coaching, and performance needs. These pianos are provided at no charge to us. Having these pianos in our facility is essential to providing quality experiences for our Guest and Resident Artists—and for our community.

To support this loan program, these and other fine pianos are annually offered for sale and then replaced with new ones. All pianos will be sold at institutional prices not normally available in retail stores. In addition to the pianos on loan, allocated grands, uprights, digitals, hybrids, players, as well as a selection of used pianos will be sold at significant discounts from their regular prices.

New or used pianos will be available for sale from top quality brands such as Kawai, Baldwin, Mason & Hamlin, Roland, pre-owned Yamaha, and others. The loaned pianos have been carefully maintained and many are less than one year old. All of the new and loaned pianos come with manufacturer warranties and technical services. Delivery and financing will be offered at the sale.

There are two ways to select and purchase a piano:

  1. Recommended: By appointment only on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, August 24, 25, or 26. An appointment allows you to purchase a piano with priority selection and special pricing prior to the public sale on Sunday. You may arrange an appointment by calling 412-454-5555, or schedule an appointment online.
  2. You may attend the public sale day on Sunday, August 27 from 12 p.m – 5 p.m. at Pittsburgh Opera Headquarters, 2425 Liberty Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15222.

This is an exceptional opportunity for you to purchase a quality piano and to help support the Pittsburgh Opera loan program at the same time. We are fortunate to have the piano loan program and would be pleased if this program were of direct benefit to you as well.

Everyone who attends the sale, regardless of which date or whether you buy a piano, will receive a special coupon good for 10% off select tickets to Pittsburgh Opera’s 2017-18 season.
