For decades Steinway & Sons has cultivated special relationships with pianists from every genre. From classical pianists like Lang Lang, to jazz stars like Diana Krall, to pop icons like Billy Joel, to “immortals” like Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Arthur Rubinstein — more than 1,600 artists make the Steinway their own.
Stetson University Piano Professor Sean Kennard was invited to join the international artist roster of Steinway & Sons – a select group that includes the most highly renowned pianists in the world. https://www.steinway.com/artists/sean-kennard

Congratulations to Dr. Kennard on this great accomplishment!
