Delaware County Community College (D.C.C.C.) partners with Cunningham Piano Company to bring world class music to the community
Richard Belcastro is a new faculty member of DCCC and has achieved a tremendous amount in a short time.
"We have brought in nationally recognized artists, many of whom have never performed in this area before. The support of the school and the community could not have been better." Belcastro added, "We were met with a significant challenge though. It was very important that our instruments live up to the standards we have set for ourselves as presenters and music educators."
After exhaustive research, DCCC chose to partner with Cunningham Piano Company to help solve the problem.
Richard commented, "The scope of the help that Cunningham could provide to us was the key to our choice. They reconditioned a neglected Bosendorfer semi concert grand piano, making our venue the finest in the region. Additionally, they upgraded and repaired our instruments where ever possible, making it possible to do more within my budget constraints. Finally, we chose a number of New Cunningham pianos for our teaching and practice studios and they've exceeded expectations in performance."
Belcastro went on to say, "Great strides have been made in this program in a short time and that pleases me. We are expanding and serving more of the community, which is our goal. Without the help of Cunningham Piano Company though, we would not be in this position now."
