Dear Faculty, Staff, Alumni and Friends of the Music Program:
I am pleased to notify you that many fine pianos loaned to the UP Music Program are now
available for purchase. The selection includes baby grands, music room grands, uprights,
hybrids and performance quality digital pianos.
The Music Program has a special arrangement with Kawai America Corporation and Portland
Piano Company that directly benefits our talented music students by providing quality new
pianos in our practice and performance spaces. These instruments are now being offered to
the public at greatly reduced prices.
All University of Portland loaned pianos will be first offered to faculty, staff,
alumni, students and friends at reduced prices by appointment Thursday through
Saturday, June 9th – 11th before being sold to the general public on Sunday June
12th. These pianos have been professionally maintained and most include the original ten-year
manufacturer’s warranty. Local arrangements have also been made for financing, professional
delivery, and warranty coverage through Kawai America Corporation.
THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO SELECT A FINE INSTRUMENT:
1. First-Choice Appointment: You are invited to take advantage of a limited number of
Preview Appointments prior to the public sale by calling (503) 775-2620. During your
preview appointment you can view, inspect, and immediately purchase your piano. This
will guarantee best selection as pianos are sold first come first served.
2. A General Public Sale will be held on Sunday June 12th, from noon to 5:00 PM at
Portland Piano Company, 8700 NE Columbia Blvd., Portland, OR. 97220
The acquisition and maintenance of a quality piano fleet is one of the most crucial and expensive
components of our accredited music program. Cooperative programs such as this piano loan
program add significant value to the needs of our students. If you’ve ever wanted to own an
exceptional piano, I encourage you to consider taking advantage of this opportunity, which
directly benefits our students, our music program and an important local and supportive
