|The Remodel Begins |
If you've visited Gist Piano
Center Louisville lately, you've probably heard the sounds of
construction as we complete Phase 1 of our 2010-2011 remodel.
Over the next month, we'll
be adding video screens to four rooms (including the lobby and recital
hall) and completely rennovating our digital piano room to make way for
the new Roland Foresta
By the end of February,
Roland will install a $25,000 state-of-the-art digital piano room at
Gist. It'll be one of only 35 in the United States.
