The presentation is free and open to the public, and we invite everyone to come enjoy a very special evening!”
Hall Piano Company has served the region since 1958. As south Louisiana’s premier Steinway & Sons dealer, their services include piano rentals and sales, acoustic and digital piano sales, piano lessons and method books.
