    The Little Theater, which was recently renovated, has been the venue for many jazz and classical concerts over the years. Most recently, Steinway Artists Eldar and the Ahn Trio performed at this venue.
     Audience:   Approximately 200 guests - students, faculty, representatives from Steinway & Sons, retired Steinway & Sons workers, College alumni and the public.
     Theme:   Steinway & Sons - Past, Present, and Future

    Students will perform vocal and/or instrumental pieces of popular music during the following periods:

    • 1850s - 1860s: The arrival of the Steinway family to America and the start of the Steinway & Sons business
    • 1870s - 1880s: Building of Steinway Village
    • 1920s: Opening of Steinway Hall on West 57th Street, New York
    • 1970s: John Lennon's Imagine
    • Now and the Future: A look at what is happening now and how it will impact the future for Steinway & Sons

    Preceding each performance, a student will provide a brief synopsis of the significant events that were taking place in Queens, New York City, and America during the various periods, and how those events impacted Steinway & Sons. Additionally, during each performance, a multimedia presentation will be projected to portray images, which best represent the events of that period.

    We will develop a Steinway & Sons collage of artifacts, which will begin at the entrance of the College and lead to the Little Theater.
