The first concert with the new C7 Yamaha Concert Grand Piano purchased by the Music Teachers’ Association of California Santa Clarita Valley Branch will be held 6 p.m. Sunday at the NorthPark Community Church.

The public is invited to attend the free concert.

“We are deeply grateful to NorthPark Community Church for housing the instrument and opening their doors to our music branch for our competitions, concerts and recitals,” said Suzy Hanna, a music teacher and a member of the Association.

The piano was delivered on Oct. 1.

The “Piano Project” was launched by Alicia Jones in the spring of 2009 when she was serving as president of the SCV Branch of the Music Teachers’ Association of California. 

Jones is an elementary school music teacher at Trinity Classical Academy, and has a private piano studio.

Numerous fundraisers were held in the past two years to raise the funds necessary to purchase the piano.

“We had Sees Candy Sales, fundraisers at Chick-fil-A, Benefit Concerts at The Master’s College and Hart High School where Staples, AIM Mail Center, Starbucks, Tea Gardens, Panera Bread, Costco, Ralph’s, Stater Brothers, Pavilions, Target and Vons, among other SCV businesses, gave donations for the cause,” said Hanna.

Hanna said Michael Chan, store manager of Keyboard Concepts of Van Nuys helped locate three pianos for members of the Association to play before selecting the Yamaha.

Free piano concert 6 p.m. Sunday, NorthPark Community Church, 28310 Kelly Johnson Parkway, Valencia. For more information about the Music Teachers’ Association of California SCV Branch visit
