The Byron community has had use of its beautiful Steinway for ten years now. In order to ensure that the quality of the Steinway is maintained it is essential to have regular services by a qualified Steinway technician. Our piano is now due for major maintenance, stage one of which will cost $10,000. The complete maintenance will cost around $30,000. Byron Music Society events have already raised $8,000 but we need more.

Please consider making a donation to this worthy cause, no matter how big or small. All donations are tax deductible.
