Pianos at Castle Museum

Brett Mitchell, Music Director of the Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra, will perform a few songs on one of the Castle Museum's historic pianos on Thursday, February 10th. Mitchell will perform at 6pm in the lobby of the museum (900 Lapeer Ave., Saginaw). The event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 5:30pm. and light refreshments will be served.

Mr. Mitchell's performance is in celebration of the museum's newest exhibit, Of Local Note: Piano Manufacturing in Saginaw County. This exhibit, which opened Wednesday, February 2, features a collection of historic pianos from the museum's collection. It also tells the story of how piano manufacturing provided an important link between Saginaw's success as a lumbering center and its reinvention as an automotive manufacturing center. At least three companies manufactured pianos in Saginaw in the early 20th century. This exhibit is in Centennial Hall and will be on display through April.
