How to donate a piano to the piano donation drive
The Washington Monument, a monument to the U.S. Constitution that has been transformed into an iconic backdrop for presidents and politicians, is expected to open in 2020.
The monument is part of a larger $3 billion effort to restore the landmark, and the Obama administration has been working to get the monument to open as soon as possible.
But some in the music community are worried that the monument could be damaged by the rising popularity of the piano.
In an interview with ABC News’ “This Week,” the pianist and founder of the Piano Donation Center, Jennifer Whelan, said that the piano is a symbol of the American dream and it needs to be respected.
“There’s an incredible amount of history, there’s an extraordinary amount of beauty, there are wonderful music and culture that’s available to everybody, and piano donations are just another way to bring it into the light,” Whelans said.
“I think it’s really important that the American people have the opportunity to see that the pianos that have served as a symbol for the American experiment in the 20th century are there to serve as a reminder of the past.”
She said that even though the piano donations were initially proposed to be funded by the government, the American government should step in and support the piano restoration.
“It’s a matter of history and tradition, not money, and that’s the only way that this piano will come back,” she said.
“I think we’ve had enough of that and we need to do something to honor that.”
Whelans, who has lived in the District of Columbia for several years, said she has heard from many people in the local music community who are worried about the piano’s potential damage.
“In some respects, it’s a little bit of a nightmare, to be honest,” she told ABC News.
“You know, there is a tremendous amount of excitement and support for the piano, but it has to be recognized and treated like a piece of art, as a piece that has value, that should be given back to the public.”
People are very interested in it, and I’ve heard people talk about it, about it going to the Smithsonian, and how exciting it is, and so on, and they’re very concerned.
“She added that she was disappointed that there wasn’t any mention of the donation drive in the president’s 2017 budget request, which included a $1 billion boost for the restoration.
The piano donation initiative was first proposed by the U,S.
government and was approved by Congress last year, according to the Piano Association of America.
The organization said it was not aware of any recent threats against the piano that have not yet been reported to the federal government.”
The Piano Donation program is designed to bring pianos to the world that are worth the effort and the time and effort of the donor,” Wshlansky said.
The organization is now urging musicians, artists and the general public to donate their pianos or pianos from other pieces of American history, especially the founding fathers, presidents, military leaders, and celebrities who have donated their pianols to the program.
The donation drive will open in 2040.
