Thanks to financial donations from individual donors and community partners, as well as support from COTA and the School of Music & Theater, the PSU Steinway Piano Series was founded in 2015.

Though joint community partnerships with Michelle’s Piano Company (Steinway dealer) and the Portland District Chapter of the Oregon Music Teachers Association (OMTA), the Series helps to enrich the educational opportunities for our PSU students and students in the community, as well as provides additional professional development opportunities for teachers in the community. It is hoped that the events will enhance the cultural offerings at PSU and provide an additional avenue to bring the community to our campus.

Two visiting pianists are invited per year to perform recitals and teach master classes.  These pianists are nationally or internationally established and recognized performers and educators.  Each visit involves a weekend of piano activities that would include a recital, a master class taught by the guest pianist, and a master class taught by piano professor Dr. Susan Chan.  Student performers include our PSU piano majors and outstanding college and pre-college students of the Portland District Chapter of OMTA.  Tickets are sold at the recitals while the master classes are free and open to the public.
