**UMBC Piano Sale**

A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM UMBC
Dear Students, Colleagues and Friends of UMBC:

We are pleased to notify you that many fine pianos used at UMBC are now available for purchase. New Yamaha pianos have been on loan to UMBC for our use as part of a special arrangement with the Yamaha Corporation and with support from Menchey Music in Baltimore. This program enables us to provide quality instruments to our students on a continual basis. These pianos are made available for purchase during a sale on campus and, in light of the current economy, are being offered at significantly reduced prices.

 The selection includes baby grands, uprights, consoles, Yamaha Clavinovas (digital pianos), and Yamaha Disklaviers (interactive player pianos).  Most of the pianos are less than one year old, have been meticulously maintained, and come with full manufacturer warranties.

This announcement will allow you the opportunity to purchase one of these fine instruments before they are offered at the general public sale on Saturday, March 23rd. Special arrangements have been made for financing, delivery, and warranty service through Menchey Music Service, Inc.

There are two occasions when you might see these pianos:
  1. You may see them by appointment on Thursday, March 21st, or Friday, March 22nd, prior to the general public sale. For an appointment please call, toll-free, 1-866-742-6673. This appointment-only portion of the event will have the best selection and pricing.

  1. You are welcome to attend the advertised sale for the general public on Saturday, March 23rd, from 10 am to 4 pm. This sale will be conducted on the UMBC campus - 1000 Hilltop Circle, Baltimore, MD.  Entrance to the sale will be located at the Fine Arts building directly down the hill from the free Reserved Parking available at Lot 8.
    (For directions and parking information, please call 1-866-742-6673.)

We have been delighted to have the use of these pianos at UMBC.

If you would like to own a fine piano, I hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to enrich your life and benefit the Music Department at UMBC at the same time.
