Kent State Music School Earns All-Steinway Honor

Hugh A. Glauser School of Music becomes 150th institution worldwide to gain the prestigious designation.

Kent State University’s College of the Arts recently celebrated the successful conclusion of its Steinway Campaign that raised $2.7 million dollars – enough to purchase nearly 70 new pianos.

The All-Steinway School designation is a prestigious honor that places Kent State in a select group of 150 global institutions of higher education that exclusively feature Steinway & Sons pianos in their recital halls, faculty studios, practice rooms and classrooms.

Gifts such as those from the estate of Elizabeth Fennell, Audio-Technica, the Kent State University Foundation Board, David and Carol Pulk and many others enabled the college’s Hugh A. Glauser School of Music to be designated as an All-Steinway School.

“The faculty and staff of the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music are dedicated to providing our students with the best opportunities to succeed,” said Denise Seachrist, director of Kent State’s School of Music.

“Being an All-Steinway School is a significant way in which we can help our students achieve their goals. Through this designation, the School of Music visibly and aurally demonstrates its commitment to 'Excellence in Action’ by providing our students and faculty with top-quality teaching and performing instruments which challenge and enhance our talent, learning and teaching,” Seachrist said.

All-Steinway Schools demonstrate a commitment to artistic and educational excellence by providing their students and faculty with the best equipment possible for the study of music. Attaining the designation emphasizes the value the university places in the future of music education and artistic expression.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have obtained this designation for the School of Music,” said John Crawford, dean of Kent State’s College of the Arts. “We are so appreciative to the many donors who helped make this happen.”
