UKZN DONORS OF NOTE (article first published : 2005-07-22)

Earlier this year, in May, six of Durban’s top pianists joined forces, giving generously of their time and performing without remuneration to present Piano Passion. This was a jazz concert hosted by Darius Brubeck with Melvin Peters, Neil Gonsalves, John Edwards, Burton Naidoo and Susan Barry at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Howard College Campus.

This benefit event raised funds which will be used towards the urgently-required reconditioning of the Steinway Concert Grand pianos housed at the university. Presented by the UKZN School of Music, this unique occasion provided the platform for the launch of the School of Music’s Donors of Note campaign.

The School of Music will shortly be “selling” the 88 keys of the piano in an attempt to raise outstanding funds needed to transport the Concert Grand to and from Cape Town, where a Steinway specialist will repair the instrument, This initiative will continue until all keys are sold. Donors will be acknowledged in a permanent display board entitled Donors of Note, mounted in UKZN's Howard College Theatre.

Each piano key will be sold for R250, except for the ubiquitously recognised 'Middle C' and 'Concert A' which have already been sold for R500 each.

Anyone wishing to purchase a key may contact Debbie Mari 031 260 3353 or marid1@ukzn.ac.za (Article 18A receipts, for Tax purposes, are available on request)
