GRPF Events

Bonfils-Stanton Steinway Restoration Celebration - Monday, June 26th at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

SOLD OUT. Sorry, there are no more tickets available for this event. 

The Governor's Residence Preservation Fund is proud to celebrate the completed restoration of the 1919 Steinway. In 2001 the Steinway piano once belonging to May Bonfils-Stanton and Charles Stanton was donated to the State of Colorado to be used in the Colorado Governor's Residence. After fifteen years of service at the mansion the historic soundboard in the piano cracked and was in need of repair. Thanks to a generous grant from the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation, the Governor's Residence Preservation Fund has restored the soundboard and made additional repairs to ensure the piano plays on for many years to come. Please join the GRPF for an evening of music courtesy of the Steinway and special musical guests that include Dick Freese, Jeff Shoemaker, and Elizabeth Caswell Dyer. The music selected for play will take guests on the musical journey of the Steinway from its date of completion through its many homes.

Date: Monday, June 26th, 2017

Tickets are $35 and include a complimentary drink and light hor d'oeuvers.
