Michelle’s Piano Company believes in the advancement of music and this is why partner with Conductor David Hattner and the Portland Youth Philharmonic. This is a ninety-one year tradition and organization which is listed as the oldest youth symphony in the United States! Currently this youth organization has about four hundred students in their various orchestras of all levels. We were privileged to host PYP for a fundraising event here at the store this past December. Kenny Regan and Kate Davis, PYP Alum’s, entertained and presented a compelling case as to why we should continue to support and fund the next generation of musicians. As well as current PYP symphony performers; Hannah Moon, Halie Borro and Fumiko Mizuno who delighted the audience with Bach and other classical pieces. This partnership with non-profit organizations like PYP benefits all on so many levels. The advancement of the arts in the community, helping to raise the necessary funds in helping to enrich the musical education of our children, and continuing to raise the imagination of the human mind through the sound of music. Michelle’s Piano Company owner and staff are committed to standing alongside organizations such as PYP in this endeavor.
