What'cha looking for?
UPDATE – Thanks to over 70 donors, we were able to purchase this piano! But you can still help us with regular tunings and maintenance!
We’ve had a wonderful, or at least charming, white baby grand piano for years. It’s served us well but we’ve outgrown it and we need an instrument that is worthy of the artists that come through Elastic Arts. A good friend of Elastic’s is parting with his well-kept Yamaha G5, and is offering it at a very generous price – it would elevate our performance space immensely to be able to buy this piano!
$5000 will cover the cost of the piano + moving and set-up expenses.
Please help us raise money to buy this piano! In addition to member benefits (see below) you’ll also be invited to a special piano unveiling/performance/celebration this fall. Suggested donation levels are below but you can donate any amount!
