There will be a free concert this Sunday for the community to celebrate the restoration of the Fort Scott High School Steinway piano.

The concert will be held Sunday, May 19 at 3 p.m. in the FSHS Auditorium, 1005 S. Main.

“This will feature the newly restored Steinway piano,” FSHS Music Instructor Meredith Reid said. “Performers will include students, alumni, and music teachers. The purpose of the concert is to recognize all of the generous donors who made this project possible.”

“We sent it off February 2018,” Ried said. “It was restored by Mike Dugan of Dugan’s Piano Service located in Nixa, MO.”

Pictures of the project from beginning to end will also be displayed.

The mystery of who donated the prized Steinway to the school has never been solved, Reid said.

Refreshments will be served following the concert.
