FILM SCREENING: "Note by Note - The Making Of Steinway L1037"

A screening of the fascinating PBS documentary "Note by Note - The Making of L1037."

Making a piano is no easy task, and making one by hand is even harder. Documentary filmmaker Ben Niles spends over a year charting the process by which Steinway & Sons, the most prestigious name in the industry, manufactures one of its concert grand pianos. Between the initial search for wood in Alaska and the piano's ultimate arrival at Steinway's showroom in New York City, a team of 450 dedicated craftspeople labors to build and assemble the L1037's 12,000 parts.

Los Angeles Valley College is an "All-Steinway School" and currently has a fleet of 22 Steinway pianos.

Thanks to the LAVC Library for purchasing a copy of "Note by Note" for the collection.
