The recent $350,000 purchase of 20 new Steinway pianos makes Westmont College the second four-year liberal arts college in California that can claim status as an “All-Steinway School.” The pianos will arrive in June, marking Westmont’s commitment to enhancing both the school’s music program and the S.B. community. Not only will the pianos be utilized by Westmont’s music students, but the Santa Barbara Symphony will utilize Westmont’s concert grand piano this season as well.
