Rachel Karr

Dear Steve,

I just learned through my student, Rachel Karr, that the Erie Phil delivered a piano to her on Tuesday. She told me last night, at her lesson— she came in beaming! I wanted to thank you for all the time and effort you put into making this happen— it’s a logistical process as well as a philanthropic one, and I can just imagine the time, dedication, and coordination that went into making it happen. I can tell you that we celebrated at Rachel’s lesson yesterday by giving her a brand new piece of music to learn, one that sounds quite big and impressive— to complement her new sound at the instrument. Also, yesterday was the first time she came in and was able to actually pedal correctly— she had been learning on an electronic keyboard before and pedaling was just beyond us. But we licked the problem in one session yesterday— solved! And it’s all because she has a real instrument to work with.

Thank you again for your generosity.
— Linda Kobler, Rachel's piano teacher
