Own a piece of Ben’s piano

The Nashville Symphony

One of the many positives to come out of last year’s tragic floods in Nashville has been increased awareness of the music scene in the Music City beyond its iconic country-western genre. Among the artifacts salvaged from the flood, albeit in an unplayable state, was Ben’s touring piano, locked away in Soundcheck Nashville, a storage facility serving the Nashville musician community, while the rising waters of the Cumberland had their way. Now that the piano has been recovered and dismantled, Ben has autographed its keys, and they will be sold to benefit the Nashville Symphony Orchestra’s annual campaign, which supports arts education in Nashville.

The keys are on sale through the Symphony’s web site. For a minimum donation of $88 (catchy, eh?), you can own a piece of music history, autographed by your favorite singer-songwriter, and benefit a worthy cause, all at the same time.

Ben was recently elected to the Symphony’s board of directors, and last year organized and headlined a benefit concert, Keys to Music City, which raised money to help with the $44 million reconstruction costs resulting from flood damage at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the orchestra’s home.
