Life is like a piano. What you get out of it depends on how you play it. (Tom Lehrer, singer-songwriter)
We have a Sohmer 6' Grand Piano with a walnut semi-gloss finish. Model: Scale A. Serial #:52612. Sohmer & Co. was founded in New York in 1872, and became famous for marketing the first baby grand piano. Irving Berlin composed White Christmas, God Bless America and many other songs on a Sohmer piano!

Ours was manufactured in 1922 on the bank of the East River in Astoria, Queens, and was graciously donated to us by Good Shepherd parish in Marine Park. It's tuned and maintained by Floating Piano Factory, a group of skilled piano technicians focused here in Brooklyn.


Steven Vaughan, our Director of Music Ministry, was recently asked to join the Piano Steering Committee of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians.
