Join us for an evening with Adam Stern, acclaimed conductor. ADAM STERN was appointed Music Director of the Sammamish Symphony in the summer of 2015, after having served for several months as Interim Conductor. He brings more than forty years of conducting experience to the orchestra, as well as his characteristic programming which blends time-honored classics with little-known rarities. Stern also conducts the Seattle Philharmonic, of which he has been Music Director since 2003, and which has presented numerous world, U.S. and West Coast premieres under Stern's direction. The Port Angeles Symphony, which played under Stern's music directorship from 2005 until 2014, also enjoyed years of tradition and innovation as well as a widely-acknowledged and -acclaimed rise in its musical standards.
Through the many years I have been in the piano industry I have been approached by many people asking about a free piano they had seen on Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, been offered by a friend of family member, or even found in a giveaway ad.
This always makes me apprehensive because for the most part they end up being anything but free in the long run.
Occasionally, a piano offered by a relative or a good friend might be a decent one, but more often than not you are getting a liability, especially if you know nothing about pianos.
