Fundraiser for Steinway Concert Grand Piano

The Instrument of the Immortals for our Upper Keys Venue

$34803 raised thus far


Dear Devoted Patron,
The spirit of giving and a community of generosity are what makes the Florida Keys Concert Association so special. We’ve come a long way from our humble 1969 roots when we were able to present only four concerts in Marathon. Through the years, volunteers and supporters in Marathon have helped us grow our Middle Keys Venue. We were able to purchase first the six-foot Petrof piano and, after many successful seasons and fundraisers in Marathon, our world-class Steinway Concert Grand piano, which elevated the performances to an extraordinary level!

Then in 2010, the Association began providing concerts in Islamorada. Historically, the Upper Keys Venue utilized our six-foot Petrof piano. While the Petrof piano served us well, patrons who attended both venues notice the difference. We yearn to create an even more captivating concert experience for all who grace the Upper Keys Venue. Thus, we embark on a mission to acquire another nine-foot Steinway Concert Grand Piano for the Upper Keys Venue, and we need your help to achieve this remarkable enhancement.

With a goal of raising $125,000, we turn to you, our cherished patron, to play a leading role in making this dream a reality. Your generosity, above and beyond your regular donations, will be the instrumental force behind this endeavor. Together, let us forge an environment where visiting artists can flourish, bringing their artistry to life and enchanting audiences throughout the Florida Keys.
